To produce aii annual yearbook tKat co^^ers tke 
entire arrav of scKool activities, and, tke scKools stu~ 
dents. teacKers. faiuilv and friends, is a dauiiting — and 
ultiniateK' revv^arding piu^suit. TKis is true ever>' year, 
and I am tempted to say tkat it is especially true tkis 
year. Tkis year tke sckool began its secoi\d kundred 

5o many indiv?idual kigkligkts vcill be co^cered in 
tkis book. Muck of tke book, too, is concerned — appro" 
priately — 'vVitk tke smaller ackie\7enients and attack" 
ments tkat kaoe meaning for individual teackers and 
students, or for particidar teams or ensembles or com" 
mittees. u-om sucl\ detail and siixcerity comes tke fabric 
tkat makes tke sckool wkat it is — a place for students to 
grow, and for deep attackments to flourisk. 

On tke larger scale, one of tke most emblematic 
events of tke year was tke opening of tke newly restored 
Sckool House and new Library. For nearly a kundred 
years Sckool House kas stood at tke centre of tke expe" 
rience for so many studei^ts wko kavc attended tke 
sckool. Students kave lived in tke building in board" 
ing wken it Was also a residence; classes Were taugkt 
in tke building wken most of tke spaces now serving as 
offices Were classrooms; a library Was attacked in. tke 
back quadrangle of tke building, and now a new Library 
kas taken tkat place. Tke effective renovation and res" 
toration of Sckool House ensures tkat tke building will 
continue to kave for future students tke nxeai^ing it kas 
kad for past students. Tke permanence of tke structure 
reinforces tke permanence of tke values and experiences 
tkat are central to tke SMUS experience. 

I Want to tkank tke students and teackers wko 
put togetker tkis record of sckool life. It is compreken" 
sive, good"natured. and spirited. It reflects tke texture of 
SMUS life as no otker record does. I always look forward 
to its appearance in tke fall, as does everyone else. 


" Bob Snowden 

■" .<■: 

The long journey finally comes to an end ae I submit this. 
the final page that needs to be submitted for the grand. . 
full color Yearbook. During the difficult journey . some have 
unfortunately left us and some have gladly joined us as we 
went through the hardships of attending every Yearbook 
session after a tiring day of school and working under my 
itV> ^"^^1 "affectionate" tyranny. There were many ups and downs 

^^ with issues of organization, deadlines, lack of photos, and 

unimaginably long write ups that we could possibly make 
a separate book out of. but all things aside. I would like to 
deeply thank them, as this year's Yearbook members have been the most dedicated, skilled, and 
enthusiastic friends that I have ever been able to work with. I would like to thank every section 
heads. Samantha. Jessie. MJ. Ian. Eric. Nick, and Nancy for their dedicated work and support. I also 
deeply thank all the members who have given their entire effort in creating such wonderful pages. 
In addition. I would also like to thank Mrs. Nason for her help with Junior School and Ms deRosen- 
roll for helping with Middle School. And finally, to Mr. Taylor and Ms. Fraser who I cannot thank 
enough for their wonderful guidance and entrusting me with this year's Yearbook. Thank you.

-ommonwealth is a unique tamily of 53 memDer 

countries around the world sharing many common 

interests. As a multiracial association of states, all equal 

and sovereign, it is a world away from the handful of 

British Dominions which were the first Commonwealth 

members. From Africa to India, from Pacific shores to 

the CarioDean, the Commonwealth s 1.7 oillion people 

make up almost a third of the world s population. The 

Commonwealth jociety of Vancouver Island worked 

with 3t AAichaels University School teachers Kirsten 

Jtudent Commonwealth Debate at the school. 

During the conference, students played roles of the Head of State for their country, presented their 
positions on selected topics for debate, and then debated on issues in order to reach a common approach to issues. 

St Michaels University School Students Jennifer Matchett, Morgan Pudweli, Andrew Stephens, Kathryn Wizinsky, Allen Hsu, and 
Danielle Ward participated in this wonderful daylong event. Kathryn Wizinsky won first place in the debate and spent a week with 
the National Commonwealth Conference in Ottawa. Additionally, Andrew Stephens won an award for his excellent contributions.

On March 1 1th, an historic first occurred for the school, when 23 ruo^ij boqs and 
2 staff (joined o few daqs later bq a third) left for the shores of Australia for 
the first ever SMUS Midde School sports tour to leave the shores of Canada. 
After thirtq-three hours of travelino> the gf oup arrived on Fridaq 1 6th at Trin- 
iU| Granner School, Melbourne to be o;~eeted bq foiner Australian Wallabies 
ruo,b4 captain and 1 999 Ruo,bij World Cup winner John Eoles After lunch it was 
tine for a lose-the-jetlag, practice session and to trq to occlinotize to the low 
30C tenperature. bacli at the school, the boqs were then whisKed owaq with 
their billet fanilies. 

Saturdaq was spent at the Healesville Wildlife Sonctuarq, with ICano,aroos, 
ICoalas, Enus, Dino,oes just a few of the 200 species of Australian wildlife livino, in 
anAustralian bush land environnent. A final practice session filled out doq. The 
evenino, was spent with billets, thoug,h a nunber of the boqs went to Telstra Sto- 
diun to watch the Collino,wood Mao,pies vs bnsbone Lions pre-seoson Australian 
Football final. Sundoq was a daq entirely spent with billet fanilies, with various visits 
to St IC.ilda beach, Luna Park entertainnent area, Philip Island, with o snail nunber 
attendino, the Fornulo One Grand Prix notor race. After a quiet Mondoq visit to 
the Cdlinojwood Mao,pies practice, and a quick, look around the Melbourne Cricket 
Ground, it was o,ane tine ao,ainst Tnnitq Granner. The teon beo,an nervouslq but 
soon hit their stride with sone g,ood ploq and a trq and a penoltq. Ahead 1 5-0 
soon after halftine, the heat ploqino, its toll, Trinitq beo,an coning, back into action to close the g,ap to three points. The tean hit rig,ht back to 
score and convert to g,ive a confidence boosting, 22-12 win. Special credit on the daq to double trq scorer Li*e McQoskeq and Log,an McCdl. 

Tuesdaq was travel doq, with a flig,ht to Canberra. On arrival, the tean went straig,ht to Radford Colleg,e where theq soon departed 
with their new host fanilies Wec^esdaq was a visit of the Australian Institute of Sport before relaxing, before g,ane tine. The boqs beg,an a little 
nervouslq ag,ainst a big,g,er opponent, but did well to hold then to just one ti~q in the first half. The huniditq and Radfords nan-child ultinatelq 
proved too nuch in the second half The boqs foug,ht back thoug,h to score two late second half tries. Joe Furness, brian Christensen and Stephen 
McArthur were the plaqers nost to the fore. 

Thursdaq the tean had a norning, visit at the Canadian Hig,h Connission, as well as a tour of the Australian War Menorial nuseun, including, a 
laqing, of a wreath at the Tonb of the Unknown Soldier, before heading, to Marist Colleg,e to neet their new billets. Fndaq was spent in downtown 
Canberra shopping, before the late aftei~noon gone. Marist College as one of Canberras top i~ug,bq schools proved too strong, for the boqs. 
The tean never stopped trqing, and deserved a trq or two thenselves. Top honours on the daq went to ICillian Widdis and Ere bebon. Saturdoq was 
a daq with billet fanilies, with the tean neeting, up in the evening, at bruce Stadiun to watch the Canberra Raiders vs. Melbourne Storn Australian 
rug,bq leag,ue natch.

This was a banner year for Grade VII Girls Basketball with close to twenty girls participating 
at one time or another. Practices in Cross Grade PE and after school along with some girls 
playing with Dani Everrit and Night League coupled with our weekly Middle School league 
games made for a long and exciting season. Perhaps the most intense games, though, were 
fought with the strong PCS team in the Mt. Douglas Tournament. Although our girls played 
their best game of the year in the finals, we were narrowly edged in the championship game. 
Particular kudos must go to Madison Hadf ield, Sara Taylor, and Aly Pollen for their deter- 
mined play throughout the year. Well done, girls, it was a pleasurecoaching you this season!

C[>rougf)out all of September, October and noucmber ttjis group 
of boys s{)on»cd dedication, determination and, most importantly, 
improvement. "Oyzy progressed from a rag tag band of atf)letes 
to an extremely committed and skilful rugby team. Un 38?^ 
competition, t^e team struggled against Sbawnigan Lake and drew 
nntf) one win a piece versus :l3rentn>ood. I3ut it was perhaps ttje 
away victory over St. <3eorgcs t^ot nnll be remembered, as wz were 
severely undersized and riddled a'itt) injuries on ttjc day. Cfje boys 
defended bravely and withstood wave after rvavz of a potent St. 
Georges attack. Witt) tries by tTom I3ridger and :6eau Parker, 
and a massive defensive effort by Kevin Lin, tbe squad managed 
to squeak out ttje wia Dn local league play, rvc wzrz undefeated 
and successfully defended tbe city ct)ampions[)ip for ttjc tFjird year 
in a row, beating cross-tonm rival Oak I3ay. Cbis sent us to tfje 
island tournament ranked second rv\yzrz rve quickly advanced to 
tf)e semi-final. On a very wet, windy, and muddy day. we were 
unable to play antb tfje necessary nTdtlj in order to beat tlje mud) 
larger J3rentwood College team. Dt was a disappointing loss, 
but in true sportsmanlike fashion tf)e team rallied to victory over 
Ladysmitb to earn a deserved tbird place on tlje island. Com 
:0ridger's distribution of t^e ball allowed iScau Parker and ijared 
Sweet to run wit() pace and determination wf)tle ?l^ac Stone and 
3of)n Rumpbries provided a solid platform up front. ^ committed 
band of parents deserves a special tbank you for braving tbe u^et 
weatbcr and sbonnng tbeir support at eacb and every game. ?l big 
tbank you too to ?15r. £liot ^indcrson, ?l>r. Gimpbell Rail, and 
tXir. "Rob Common for tbeir coacbing expertise. Vivat!

Dedicated, fjard n-orkhig and experienced jvere a fen' of tf)c ivords being used to describe tljis first XV. Witt) [)ig|)

Cljrougfjout ttje regular season. tf)e second XV proucd ttjeir n'orttj bv fronting up against mud) older and larger

of t})is team is often understated but tfjey most certainly played an integral role in ninning tt)e 1&Z title. Deu'comer,

inidfiekL Dn tf)e fonvords, a small pack mis anc()ored by grade 10 ?t>asaki Kunimoto and veteran campaigner Duncan 

Opting not to tour, Wyz first XV started tfjeir season sIonHy nHtt) a victory over Port ^Ibenii prior to tt)eir first real 
test against l3rentn'ood. C()c lack of preparation time 3()on"ed and proiied costly as Wyz team lost tt)eir first real test of 

l!)c season 18-11. Dext up n-os Sf)amiigan. Once again, tt)e fom-ords \ycid tt)cir [)ands full n-itl) a [vn-erful St)anTiigan pack n+)id) took anw

on tt>c cards antt) a matd) up against perennial p?a\n1)ouse Carson (5ral)am. S?TMIS avis in total control tt)e a'()ole game and wan a mud) 
needed confideiKe boost antt) a 31-26. 

(3oing into tt)e ^SC tournament ranked 3rd, SHMIS drea' a quarterfinal matd) up against Semiamfjoo. Cl)ey st)oa'ed complete dominance 
rigf)t from tt)e opening kick off r\-\)tit) alloa-ed all tt)e resen'cs to play in a 28-5 victory. 'Oyssc anns set-up a semi-final game against island rival 
S^aaTiigan Lake. Witt) d)atKe to earn redemption from tt)e early season loss. S?TMIS avis primed for tt)e occasion domitvating t})e first l)alf

SfKimiigan controlled play for Wyz final 20 minutes and STIMIS a'as defending a scant 11-7 lead Fksa'cvcr, tt)e defence did not fold otkI tf)e 
referee's a4)istle sent tt)e boys to tt)c 13C final. 

C[)e opening kick-off for 5?T>US could not \ymc been better! 0corges dropped tl)e ball 5 meters out and ^6eau Parker dotted donm just 
nnde of tt)e posts after tfje ensuing scrummage to put STJMIS 
up 5-0. Roaxavn-, for tt)c rest of tt)e Mf. S?]>US absorbed 
a potent St. Oeorges attack. Only braw: defending from tt)e

Ajit Singt) and Lucas Parker, SHMIS earned a true team 
wctory. f^ final score of 2 1 - 1 2 saa' tt)e team com tt)e Sc})Oors 
first rugby title in 10 years! 

Finally, in on eerie coincidence, as tfje team posed for 
pl)otograpf)3 under tt)e Cbunderbird Stadium scoredock at full 
time, tt)e tt)ougf)ts of many turned to Q)uck S|)ergold. "Oyz

Junior Slrls Soccer 

This was a great season for tne Junior tuirls soccer 
team: after placing fourth in their pool, they rose to the 
challenge of playing Claremont, ranhea first in their pool, 
and defeated them in penally kichs 4-3. Dy placing third 
in the city playoffs, the team achieved the honour of being 
the first junior Girls soccer team to represent jAAUj at' 
the Island tournament. In this tournament, the girls, held 
the Oah Bay team (who had placed first in the city) at a 
scoreless draw, hut unfortunately lost to rrancis Ixelscy , 
a team that went on to tahe second place, 2-1. I he team 
peahed during a very exciting game against Droohs, where 
the constant pressure and shots Dy the SAAUj girls was 
not reflected in the score_|^ 1-0 win. The SMUS team 
had an unfortunate Igss against Keynolds that placed Inem 
sixth out of eight teams. 

Althougrf this result is amazing, what is even more 
impressive is the transformation throughout the season 
- fijim harely heating Stellys 1-0 in the first game to tying 
powerhouses Oak Bay twice in the season. I his improve- 
ment is inspiring, and means that there are better things to 
come from this group; thanks to everyone for the incredible

mis year the Jenior Cms iu>.>.c. i.eo.i. 
started ofF their season with a tour to Hawaii. 

Needless to say, spirits were just as high about 
our tans as about the games. We competed 
with reputable teams from across North 
America and had an amazing time. Vve came 
home to start our season after spring break 
charged and ready. With a loss against iCj 
standing in our way we didn t get to the dC s. 
But the memories of the season were just as 
rewarding. We showed our heart for the game 
in putting together 8-10 man teams to compete 
in tournaments in Nanaimo and Vancouver, 
winning against some stiff competition, "laying 
on the centre field at the alumni game (stirring 
some conflict) was a highlight to our season. 
This year, our team banaed together in strength, 
heart and skill. We created memories on and 
ff the field that will last for soccer seasons 
come. Thanhs to Tanis rarish for working

The S/ViUS junior Girls Volleyball team did not come out on top in every game this season, but the 
girls made tremendous improvements and put in several fine pedormances. I he Victoria Junior tlids 
League was divided into A and D pools this year, with jAAUj contributing teams to both pools. 
Our A squad narrowly missed City Championships after losing a challenge match to Claremont. 

Co-captains Kirsten AAarsh and fatricia Halim were great leaders and team motivators. Kirsten, Lauren 
Kerr and Kaeleigh Fletcher turned it on at the net to mount an impressive offense. I heir strong spiking 
and net play were huge assets to the team. I hey are to be commended for their consistently excellent 
play. Also contributing much at the net in her bloching and hitting skills was jasmine Tan, who has 
a great future as a middle blocker, jetters /V\anise Nussbaumer, Laura Cilmore and Nicole Codwin 
developed much assertiveness and confidence, essential qualities for their quarterback positions on the 
team. AAarlise s consistency, Laura s powerful outside sets and Nicole s hustle for the ball contributed 
much to overall team play. Newcomers Ashley Hawes and Jtephanie Yang showed much versatility, 
playing well in both back court and front court. I hey both made excellent improvements in passing skills 
and at season s end were making excellent contact with the ball in their hits. Jtrong defense and court 
coverage skills were demonstrated by all members of the team, i atricia, Jteph and jasmine did very well 
at passing the ball to target. Kudos to Kaeleigh and /V\arlise, in particular, for their hustle and digging. 

All in all, the junior Cirls A team was a motivated, focused, spirited group of young athletes who 
developed much skill and confidence. I he grade lOs will add much clout to an already-strong jenior 
Girls line-up next year, while Kaeleigh and Jteph will provide the leadership core of the Junior team.

When looked at in terms of skill, ttie Senior Girls Vollcytall Team is one of the strongest groups 
of girls in years. Witk tke kigfit of Jess Harvey [A], Hannak f aton, and Brenda Moore, blocking 
at tke net was always successful. Tke strengtk of poA-er kitters Winnie foon, Gloria Ng, and 
jess Giualley also produced winning offensive attacks. Trina Macintosk [A] and fiecca Minaker 
provided tke team witk ever-versatile play and various strong spikes. Nicole Edgar skowed great 
strengtk in ker sen/ing and passing and Kacie Ward, playing libero, made sure no ball ever kit tke 
floor in tke back court. Dritt Martin [C] took on a new role as setter creating great opportunities 
for tkis talented group of volleyball players. Tke season did not end as well as planned witk a 7tk 
place island tournament finisk. Despite tkis disappointment tke team learnt a lot about game play and 
tkeir overall skill improved immensely. Tkey also kad a ckance to attend a private sckool tournament 
in Calgary and participated in many off-island tournaments in Vancouver. Tkree gids will be grading 
tkis year Winnie, Kacie, and Nicole, altkougk tkese girls were immense assets to tke team, tke grade 
elevens and new coming grade tens will work kard to improve tkeir standings in tke next sckool year. 
I hanks to Kristin, Mrs. Anderson, and Daylyn for tke numerous kours tkey put in improving our 
play. It was a great season! 

I ne 2007 golf season was one of the best in recent years. After 
a slow start at the Aroutus Kidge Invitational, the team improveo 
steadily, flaying in hurricane lihe winds at the Cities, we scored well 
enough to advance to the AA Island Championship lournament, 
where, to everyone s surprise and delight, we finished second, just 
losing out to Drentwood in a play-off. At the AA irovincial 
Championship I ournament, which was played on two challenging 
courses on the junshlne Coast, we finished seventh out of thirteGn."! 
Although this was a bit of a disappointment, there was still a bright 
side, as Kebecca AAinaRer emerged as the AA Clrls frovincial 
Champion, lo all the players, I would lihe to say, next year will be 
our year and thanh you for your cheerfulness and fine play.

I he Jeniof Cross Country I earn was composed of both girls and boys, from Crades 9-12. I he teams goals were twofold: personal improvement and 
team performance. I he Senior Cross Country Season was composed of U league races, and culminated with the Island Championships, held at Deaver Lah 
I his year participation was very good, as we had approximately 50 runners involved in the different events. During the league races, it was apparent that both 
Alex Z-apantis and Leo /v\archand were determined on improving with each race. Doth of these junior runners were consistently in the top 15 for their age 
group. On the girls side. Heather Duchingham and Sara I raubel found themselves in the top 15 consistently for their age groups. Also in the league races, 
SAAUS recorded some very rine team results, where we finished as high as 2nd place in both the boys and the girls events. 

At the Islands, our school once again performed very well in the muddy conditions, with many of the runners setting personal best times on the course. 
Craig Corman was our top performer, finishing in 21st spot on the boys side, but it was perhaps our team results that were most impressive, the girls team 
finished in 15th place and the boys team finished in 5th place. 

Although we did not qualify for the Trovincials, the team showed huge improvement as the season progressed. Although we will be saying goodbye to 
star runners To- Wei Chuang, Kayeez Jaffarullah, Jag DhariwaJ, Sharon Yu, AAaria Julia Oliveras, both coach lobacco and coach Hunt are looking forward 
to next year already, as much of the talent lies within the youth of this team.

The 2007 Track and field teann was relatively small in numbers but loaded with talent and determination. Although experiencing a late start 

due to our lengthy spring break, athletes quickly jumped into the third meet of the league scries producing a number of excellent results and 

having a chance to experience a variety of new events and training clinics. It was especially pleasing to witness the development and improving 

performances of new comers Christine Schweitzer, Moniquc Vvong, Carol Ng, lulie Shim, and Sonja Kenzlers. 

In the long distance events strong performances were produced by Alex Zapantis and Leo Marchand in the 3000 metres and Heather 

Buckingham in tne difficult and technical steeplechase. 

Middle distance and sprinting evenb saw Riley Gudgeon quickly improve throughout the season, posting multiple personal bests and narrowly 

missing berths to the B.C. Championship Meet in both the 400 and 800 metre races. 

This year SMUS truly dominated both the long and triple jump with fo 'Aei Chaung. Imran Ismail and Tony Chuang constantly placing in 

the top U in both events. Advanced training and dedication throughout the season culminating in impressive jumping in the competitive Island 

Championships resulting in Imran Ismail and Tony Chuang both qualifying for the open triple jump event and ro Wei Chuang qualifying for 

the second year in a row in the long jump. SMUS's jumpers completed their year at the B.C. Championship meet with impressive results. 

Imran and Tony placed 9th and 22nd respectively, both posting personal bests. At the same meet. Po Wei eclipsed his personal record by 

over 20 cm to place 4th in the long jump with a final jump of 6.28. As only 2 centimetres separated 4th through 2nd place. To Wei s 

performance was especially impressive. Congratulations to all competitors on a line season! 

The season was spectacular as this 10 year old team found all the pieces needed to achieve its goals. An outstanding group of committed athletes reached gold 
and then platinum performance standards early on in the season setting the tone for a remarRable series of races. Leadership and grace guided the team throughout their 
season as experienced rowers challenged and mentored the novices. Three league regattas culminated with the LVIjjAA champs, a 2 day regatta involving heats, 
semis and finals for 20 events. SAAUj qualified for 17 of the 20 finals and won 6 championships, placing 2nd overall behind Jtelly s. 

The junior girls experienced eight led by i\ichelle Leonard and Liz renje and coxed by Alicia fawluh dominated the field with a stellar victory. Kichelle and Uz 
went on to win the double and place second in the quad. Novices AAaryann Watson, Caryn Dooner, Nikhi VDWal, Anna rretz, Lauren Kuilar and Lexi 
AAcColl rounded out those crews. Lexi, AAaryann, NiRRi and Caryn went on to win the novice girls quad by an overwhelming !3 second margin! 

For senior girls, doubles partners Channeile Sawyer and Angharad Wylie placed Uth in the senior girls eight along with Vanessa Lah and five of the novice girls. 
In novice action, Charlotte AAcGee, AAichelle Cheimah, AAari Timoshchuch, Jen Rao, Lexi lulineila, and jeria Dag earned the silver in the 8-. 

The junior boys experienced eight led by Jon Cunningham and Jcott Swinheis and coxed by Nich f awluh stormed down the course to a strong victory. Jon and 
jcott went on to earn bronze in the doubles event. 

The senior boys of Derek Steoman, Dave Stewart, JacR Chan and Sam Witt raced magnificently in the quad earning the bronze. Derek and Jake went on to-: 
earn bronze in the double. 

The senior novice boys went on to defend their titles in both the eight and the quad events with AAike Upton steering the quad to a .3 second victory over 
Claremont and Nick lawluR coxing the eight including Chris Cunningham, Constantine tsphording, AAike Upton, Scott AAyers, Josh Evans, Ashhaughn rorghani, 
Onye Onyebar, and Drandon twonus to a strong gold in the eight.

"^ students in Grades 9-12 at the school. 

In league play this year, the team went undefeated and clinched the league title. At the 
Island Tournament, the jAAUS team continued its winning ways with two big victories 
U^^^ over rival schools Jt. Andrews and Claremont. I he I jA I ournament soon Followed, and 
InLtKe team once again was victorious with a huge vAn over Crorton House. In this span 
jwtime. the jAAUj jenior Dadminton leam made history, by recording a 17 game win 

In AAarch, the team traveled to Richmond to compete at the irovincials. Vvith the 
goal of making the top 8, the team round themselves in a diriicult pool. In pool play, 
tfte team lost t/vo 6-5 heartbreahers, wnicn thwarted the hopes of making the top 8. In 
spite of this setbacl?. the team did not fold, and they came bacR with a vengeance and 
won the remaining 5 games to wrin the Consolation Kound. 

Leading the way this year were a core of (jrade 12 s who. for the better part of 
the last few years, contributed greatly to the badminton program at the school. LJn the 
IK gins side were Jaime jharpe and jharon Yu, who had the ability to play in both singles 
and doubles, and both did so brilliantly. Winnie loon and Jurrey Lin in doubles play 
were aosoiutely stellar and together, lost no more than 5 games in 4 years together as a 
pair. On the boys side, Kevin Tseng led the way with his quickness, and Henry Chen 
provided the competitive spirit. Jesse Wang was also a major contributor and had the 
aoiiity to bring his A game when the calling came. Under this core of grade 12 s are a 
pack of youthful badminton enthusiasts who expect nothing more than perfection. I heir 
E desire to improve, to be committed, and become the next frovincial Champions is clearly 
there. I am optimistic that the team will only improve in the future and I am excited 
about the potential for next season.

We left a piece of lemon cake and cooled cfiai tea 
on your desfc. 

WalRing home from work I pause in the darkened lane 

3 steps shy of the speed Dump that has saved the neighborhood kids 

Like riding little irves time and time again, the same kids who, 

on the other side of the ivy-grown fence. 

used to put sprinklers under trampolines and jump 

from stone to stone collecting blueDells and picking snails, 

to appease the springime sprites and gumpy garden-gods. 

This is where I stop to hold once more that last moment, 

when we clutched at our sleeves in the cooling summer night 

and held tight to the burning tigers and snarling dragons 

reluctant to shed 

sun touched murmurs carried on the backs of hummingbirds, 

faithful little messengers who danced through the air 

to your playful gypsy song and dodged 

dragonflies that now hang in crisp repose 

from (you said) your bedroom ceiling, 

feebly warning autumn off. 

In tne rieat of a |uly afternoon. 

tne trampoline in trie back yard was broken, 

and we waited for someone strong enougfi to fix it.

jcies. The frames were made of yellow cedar, held together with artificial sinew, and the skin was ballistic Nylon. These beautiful, sleek hunting crafts 

ghed in at only 35 pounds when completed. 
_ Our instructor and mentor throughout this project was Mark Reuten, of Nomad Boatbuilding. He patiently taught us how to sharpen, care for, 
and safely use our woodworking tools. Although we went through many Band-Aids, nobody lost any digits! Throughout the project Mark regaled us

s been a wonderful year for the Winslow Wildcats. We had the biggest house in boarding, and most of the girls were new 
^^is year, so it was all fresh and new. We also had grade eights tor the first time in a while this year, a group that we were 
glad to have. At the beginning of the year, with a great conviction, we announced our goal to win the house cup. It seems 
liRe that we will not win the cup this year. Dut we shocked all the boarders, even ourselves, by showing our athletic skills that 
we ve been hiding for years! House spirit was at an all time high and we participated in a lot of fun activities like culture nights, 
tie dyeing and many tasty house dinners! Also, we welcomed our gorgeous Winslow boy. Jack! 

1 hank you, /V\r. and AArs. Tweedie, the AAcOueens, Anna, janine, Nicole, AAr. and /V\rs. Jackson, Jaime, Z.yoji, and Ian. 
Nicole, it was a great pleasure to have you this year at Winslow. We will miss you. I hank you to the prefects, grade 12s, and 
T 1 1 s for all the help, and special thanks to Cat AAetke, who worked hard for the house in various activities (And who has 
been the best roommate in the world as well). At last but not least, thank you, Darnacle boys. And we know that you guys 
appreciate to have us living right next to you. Cllood luck next year. Wildcats. Kemember, we are the best!

Another great year has gone by for the I immis girls, this time surviving a flood, enjoying the comfort of our new commol 
room and coping with the crazy weather the year offered us. joining the house this year were spuni^y Clare, Kelly witi 
the Jponge Dob invasion, sort spor?en I sumugi, Ashley and her swim seshes, sweet Drenda, supportive jara and there are na 
words to describe Allison. Although she s been a I immis girl for only 2 years, we will remember our growing rowing celebriW 
Kichelle. I he 33 I immis girls and I enjoyed watching AAafiena grow through the year, and many times we saw jandra ani 
jurrey tripping when getting out of their rooms because someone had decided the hallway was a good parl?ing spot. WhJ 
can forget the everlasting dance parties (mostly led by Kate) that helped create the essence of the house.' With the creatiol 
of I immis Next I op AAodel and many other original activities, we had a blast on our weekly Family I ime . CJnce agair 
I immis house f?ept up with house spirit by having a very 

successful year in house games. Our strong group of grade lis (which outnumbered the rest of the grades in the house) led ul 
to many victories. All the grads had a great time at the house outings with the rest of the girls, building uncountable memoriej 
of fun and laughter. 

We are grateful to welcome two more creatures into the midst of the I immis family for the upcoming year. 

Jest wishes and good luck 

to all of my sisters!!

Head of House 


1 he year was incredible with all these penguins - a time that will never be torgotten. Deing the house with the most boys, right from the beginning 
"Dolton became famous for being funny, causing trouble, messing with 1 immis girls and of course for being damn good loohiing. 
rirst floor was dominated by the clean freaks Andre and his always tired Denson, and late arrivers rrangois and Nathan T^. helped Andre j. and 
C_urtis create chaos. On second floor you could always find the gamers led by Kayeez and his fresh crew Kyan, Joseph and Allan while I im and 
Herman were usually hiding in their rooms, rurthermore you would find Nathan W. buying anything you could thinh of on eliay and trading Jordan: 
with I im Wu or the famous, classic gang of four, AAyung Hwan, Arthur, trie and Andrew \^ punching holes! 1 bird floor had (_ommon running 
show and his army of grade 8 s spending hours cleaning their room and doing pushups for late checR-ins. In the middle of that line of tirade 8 s you 
would find Jcott making fun of his roommate James for playing counterstrihe all day and I ommy and vDordon straight chillin. Inside our new common 
room you could always find Kobbie watching movies and eating candy right beside the couple of the year (oryan and AAJ). 

Ijesides taking part in all kinds of school sports, the boys showed great interest in intramurals such as Cjolf and Junday swimming, which became liter- 
ally Dolton intramurals - no one wanted to swim with us crazy penguins. 

Dut what would the house have been like without the amazing care, support and help Wendy gave everyone throughout the whole year. Let us not 
forget the sweet rHot Dog and poker nights and her ridiculously good Banana Dread! Also thanks to the triple C- s Common Connor and Culham 
for doing dec. Cjood luck next year l enguins.

ror some 



Its been one terrific year for bymons House. VVeve arrived at the Hnishing line ot this obstacle run loaded with new expi 

essons and tried new ideas.Sometimes we felt overwhelmed hut we were treated with Ms. lachson's Relaxation Sessions and a cup of hot chocolate. That mostly did the iob 
For some tough cases we brought in a Yoga Specialist who taught us a lesson for life.We also learned that if we ordered in too much Chinese food, the Harvey boys woulc 
hesitate to help us out. This year over half of our house constituted of new students and those buzzy grade Qns and lOns really kept our energy up. We like to blame th( 
in the laundry rooms on a ghost but we still haven't solved the mystery. We must although admit to the mess in our own rooms, having to appreciate the houseparenb 
desperate attempts to make us squeaky-clean our rooms on I uesday nights. 

At house games, what can I say, we just ROCK! The Superstars all gave their best, played fair and hard, striving to make our 5-year Championship into 6 years 
Our new Common room is where the party's at and the sound of foosbail follows us into our dreams. Although the juniors always stretch their curfew to the last minute, thi 
Grade 12s gave up on social life and hermit to their rooms before the Grad 9s. (Obviously not being the troublemakers this year) 
Symons girls are true Superstars and we have some concrete evidence. Some amazing musicians, mathematicians, actors, athletes and dancers shot their way up to the moon anc 
reached the stars. 

It's hard to believe how time flies and all these experiences have furnished us with great memories. We would like to thank Mrs. Murtland for her care, Ms. Jackson for hei 
wit and funny sarcasm and AAs. Lloyd for her wicked house games strategies 
Last but not least we are grateful for having had Marlese this year, your enthusiasm made our days sunnier, you organized great activities that gave us some time out of boarding 
We are das to say good-bye, but we wish you all the best in your next adventure. 
We are jrf sure what's ahead but next year Symons will have a strong grade 12 group that will bring forth the Symons legacy of friendship, trust and care to make next yeai

My first day of classes at SMUS was one of the scariest yet most amusing days of my life. It tool? me a long time to realize SAAUS would becom 
a part of me one day . I would like to thank my mom and dad. I wouldn t be where I am or who I am if it weren t for you. Next, my brother and 
friends hack home who never stopped calling and helped me through my tough times. To my friends (you all know who you are) who made my life 
easier just by making me laugh and were a shoulder to cry on. I will miss boarding with amazing people and sharing those walks and nights up to 
Mt Tolmie, which will never be forgotten. All my gratitude to my teachers who taught me what is useful; Mr 1, thank you for listening to my lame 
excuses for not wearing a tie, and to Mr Young for making me laugh so hard every class. Today 1 leave SMUS behind, but with me I take all the 
experiences and memories that will go with me everywhere. 

Studying at SMUS is a memorable experience. Here, we share laughs and tears. What we have learnt is not just the knowledge in books, but we 
learn to get into the community, meeting different people and making friends. Having friends around always make you feel better, sharing happiness 
and sadness. I have just stayed in the school for a short year, yet it must be one of the most memorable experiences in my life. The trips we took, 
and living in boarding, have been so much fun (hmm hotpot. . .) :) Okay, and maybe now lets give a special thanks to my parents and teachers; 
things you have taught us are precious. Also a great thanks to friends in SMUS, times with you are invaluable, well especially for some comedians, 
thanks for your random-ness . Haha, keep in touch guys!! 


by so fast. I have enjoyed every moment of li\- 

Timmis and at SMUS. I would like to thank my parents I 

not have been fun. Friends in boarding, thanks for the duty visits - they made the duty fly by. The Girls Night Out dinners with my Anya, Christine and 
J Cat were a great stress relief. Drown Hall dinners at 5 p.m. every evening, where we were joined by Uvgeny and the rest of our friends, were something to 
look forward to everyday, especially bad ones. Thank you, Winnie, for being a great friend. I won t forget the late night dancing when you did not realize 1 
was in the room. Cat, thank you for a comic doodles you showed me in between classes, raith and Christine, I will not forget the late night phone calls. To 
everyone else, you have all helped find who I am. Thank you. Keep in touch. 

My time at SMUS passed extremely quickly, as it seemed that my first day at the senior school in Cllrade 9 was too close to the stresses 
of university applications in Grade 12. All the things that I have accomplished in and out of school, and in Japan would not go without 
^ thanks to my friends and family for all their support. I here were a lot of stresses, out nevertheless these were probably some of the best years 
of my life. Along with the long days studying, there were some great nights with friends that I will never forget. I can t wait to go on 
to university, and start the next chapter of my life with all of you in mind. Thanks for everything. Good luck to all the Grads of 2007, 
without a doubt the besfgrad year since 1973. I

four years is a long time for most but my time at SMUS has flown by. It seems only yesterday I first walked into the art room and saw a massive fro; it 
was the start of a beautiful friendship with Neeks. Pete, Jesse, Yianni, Dave, Al, Ajit, Jeff, Den and all my boys these last few years have been unforget- 
table, from Rugby tours to friday nights (and the Saturday mornings. . .) I have so many memories I II always cherish. The girls, you have been unbelievable 
and it s true what they say about not being able to live with or without you. Katie, I love you; you have saved me on many occasions, and the last few 
years wouldn t have been the same without you. Mum and Dad, 1 wouldn t be here without you. Thanks again. To my siblings, treasure everyday with 
your friends because you II never forget those close to you. Teachers, cheers. Without your help, I d be back here next year! Whatever the next stage in our 
lives brings us, let s never forget the times we had together at SMUS. 1 love you all! 


for tKe past nine years I've Iwen dreaming of wkat I would say in my grad write-up. yet come this time I m speechless. Of course. I fiave to thank the school for 
transforming me from a shy eight year old who was terrified of hoys to the semi respectable person I am today. To my family, thanhs for always pushing me, I realize 
now that it was all worth it. To James, you let me tinow that hcing smart is cool. Thanhs to the girls for our endless nights of f^oxanne. house boating and the 
Captain. Thanhs to my junior school crew, especially Stephen Dong and his neon green cast, for all the amusement it provided me with. I wish my fellow grads the

To get into SMUS in 19914, my task was simple: to draw a dinosaur. Unfortunately, tke next 13 years of otligation weren t a task of similar difficulty. 
To my parents, 1 want to thank you a hundred thousand times. To the 16 other lifers, hats off to all of us, we all have our days, our jokes, and our memo- 
ries. To the rest of the graduating class, 1 wish you the Lest of luck in your endeavours. To the teachers who didn t make my life easier, and made me who 
1 am today, thank you very much. It s good to know that this is all 1 have to do to leave because I m definitely ready to get out! To all of my friends, 
keep in touch... All of you are so great, so powerful in your own unique ways, and 1 hope that we can all come back in a tew years, and unt'l that day, 
stay connected. "The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted match. Each one of you is a fuse. -Edward Koch All right guys, you heard the 
man, lets get out there, and make a huge bang! Ciao. 

The last Burnett. . .1 think! 13 years at SMUS has been unbelievable. From cracking a boys head open with an acorn , almost blinding a boy with a berry, 
to getting sent back to kindergarten for a day in Grade 5, my time at SMUS has been memorable. There are so many people who have made my time 
at SMUS indescribable. Thanks to the brothers; Lauchlin, Dave, and Chris for being someone 1 could look up to. Thanks to the parents: you ve always 
been there for me and supported me in everything I ve done. Thanks to the friends: for sharing laughter and tears with me (mostly the former). Thanks to the 
Dominican group: I will never forget that trip (especially New Years!). Thanks to the teachers: for putting up with me and teaching me how to believe in 
myself Good luck to the graduating class of 2007. VIVAT! 
Toco a Poco' - Lttle'by little 


lu ridiculous, its absurd how many times Ive worn this uniform, how many times 1 ve pulled up my socks, buttoned up my shirt. 13 years, it couldn t have 
gone by slower. This promenade began when 1 was 5 years old: 1 can t believe this has been my life up to now, so many traumatic, yet amazing times at this 
place. Those responsible for those times? Well. . .you know who you are. My friends. Really what would 1 have done without you; What s a wolf without 
1 a pack? What s life without music? A brain without a mind? What am I without you? Nothing. 1 count the incredible experiences we ve had but it fails, 
its math 1 can't even do. This is dedicated to all of you who made my high school years worth living, inigh school is just a mild milestone everyone eventually 
climbs, my life starts now and the memories well all memories die out, but not the ones of you. You re really only better off with half your life, and nobody 
really knows which street to take, but 1 II always be there to haunt your mind. 

A huge shout out to ail of you who have kelped me and care about me. It would take forever to make the endless list of names, but please 
know that you guys are really important to me. I cannot picture myself without any of you. Thank you very much, your names will always be 
remembered. All the best. 


Congratulations to tke Graduating Class of 2007! 

4 years of this roller coaster ride has given me the ups and downs that have shaped me into the person I am right now. out this is all coming to an end. I 
am leaving with all the memories of this place: from the alley to poker nights and from midnight deep chats to business club meetings that no one shows 
up to, 1 will be starting the next chapter of my life. The truth is, the same faces will never be at the same place doing the same thing at the same moment ' 
again. All I wish for now is that friends can still be friends for the coming years. It s been awesome hanging out with all my friends and thank you all: Daryl, 
Meyash, lay, Tomson, Max, Emily, Ravin, Kevin, Jesse, Ken, Vernus, Elton, Kyu. fien, lessica, Julie, and many more. And also, thank you for your 
patience in tolerating all my 'unnecessary jokes. I also want to thank all my Hanrey boys for making my last year so incredible. Thanks to all house parents 
^ and teachers. Last but not least, thanks to my mom and dad.

As Martin Luther King. Ir. conveyed with such powerful, stirring emotion. 'Free at last! Free at last! God Almighty, we are free at last!'. I believe highly 
that it is time for all of us to spread our wings and soar, riding with our newfound freedoms and responsibilities, into the unknown of independence. With 
such exciting change being offered, I can only think that our personal scratches and blemishes from the thorns and prickles of childhood must smooth away, as 
k we learn that the true meaning of education is the development and practice of good citizenship, and we finally grow up. I thank each and every person who 
'has ever shared a kind word with me or let me spend time getting to know them; I think you're incredible. To my teachers, you have been my friends, guides.' 
and mentors, as well as tremendous inspiration, and to my parents. I love you. 

The time goes so fast. Four years have passed already. During these years, I have met so many true friends. Jesse, thanks your food in grade 9 and grade 10, 
Henry, stop asking me to massage you. Kevin, thanks for giving me advice when I was having difficulties. Ian and Eric, you guys are so funny when you 
fight each other, f o-wei, I love your car; thanks for taking me home everyday, lack, you are the funniest guy that I have ever met. Luke, you are my best 
friend because we are both fat. and stop calling me pig. Nancy, you will be my older sister for ever. Makiyo. thank you so much. When I have no idea 
'* how to do my homework, you always help me. To my lovely brother, lohnny. you are so cute. Alice, stop being so mean to your boyfriend; be nice to him. 
For my dear sister, firenda. don't worry too much, everything will be fine. I will always stand by your side. Good luck everyone. Hope I can see you guys 

At last, my five years at SMUS are coming to the end and will soon fade into gilded memories ('Always put a topic sentence! said Mr. Young). I want 
to thank my parents for the love and support. Many thanks to the teachers (as if they'll look at this); Mrs.Skinner (when are you coming to my house for 
dinner?). Mrs.Rajotte (math rocks), Mr.Gardiner ("knowledge is power!'), Mr. Young, Mr.Kerr. Mr.|ackson, Mr.Leggatt and many others. To my buddies: 
Jesse, we've been friends for a long time, I'll never forget those days when we were in grade 8; Kevin, I'll buy the first house you build; Kenny; midnight rice 
party roommate power! Henry, see you in university; Nick, I'll come back to visit; Kyu. when can we play soccer again? fo. let me drive your car next , 
, time; Luke, say hi to your sis; Winnie and Surry (spell check for your name), many memories since grade 8; Chloe. stay tuned with Beckham; Vince. Sandra, 
Ahrom, thanks for being friends; All: Friends forever! Good luck and farewell. 

It is hard to believe that this is my 4th year at SMUS, and this is my final year in high school. At the beginning of Gr. 12. I thought my friends and I still 
had lots of time, but time flies quickly. I am going to Graduate! I never dreamed that I would leave high school and go to university, but this is the reality. 
First, I want to thank my parents. To my friends: lesse, thanks for all the support. I will remember the fun we had. Kevin, thanks for inviting me to your 
house all the time. 1 will remember all the badminton time. Ian and Eric, thanks for the fun in your house and my room, especially the late night games. Ken, 
thanks for living with me for two years and tolerating all my bad habits. I will remember the 1.2,3. Luke, thanks for going to firown Hall with me and trusting 
r me. Thanks to Winnie. Surrey. Chloe, Vince, Nick and all my other friends. Wei-Wei, I love you all the time. Good luck in everything and do your best. 
To the grad class 2007. good luck and take care. 

End of high school life - all innocence lost (!!!) So here I am, trying to cram 5 years of SMUS into a thousand characters including spaces. Her,ry^ thanks 
for making your bed my 2nd home at SMUS. Nick, you are the greatest farting machine ever (it's a compliment, you know that.) Ken, we shall have 
another rice party and sing Lion King before going to bed one last time, lesse, I'll miss you and your jie pi. good luck to you and your family! Kevin, please

' space to do so, THANK YOU! 

s. I never tkougk my iiigh school years would enj so fast. I d lihe to tkanl? my parents for supporting mc and bringing me here, 
against my will at first. I ve learned a couple of things, met some new people, ana learned about other cultures. After being in the school for so 
long, I think I finally understand what studying means. To my friends, you Snow where I m going and what I II be doing next year. To the grad 
class 07, good luck. 

;- f- ^ 

So, tks is the end. I'm leaving. GooJ-bye, SAAUS. GooJ-bye, Canada. Four years at SMUS leaves me with uncountable memories: late nigkt chats, 
musicals, and so many things that I will never forget. Moreover, those years at SMUS helped me to discover my passion for performing arts, fine arb, and 
filmmaking, which I will he doing for the rest of my life. Great thanks to all the teachers at school, for teaching me, and helping me to cope with hardships, 
and also guiding me to reach my goals. Thank you. Winslow house parents - the TweeJies, the McQueens, lanine, Anna, and Nicole. I II miss you lots. 
To Winslow Wildcats, meeting you all was the most wonderful thing that ever happened in my life. I love you gids. Thanks, mom and dad, for always being 
there for me. Yura, you re the best sister in the world. To my dear bros, |ay Jung and Sang, you guys are the best! To all my friends, I hope our friendship ' 
last forever. Congratulations, grad 2007! I wish you the best. 

life r iftrt!n\sS:^hol 



It is hard to believe that this long journey is almost over. This journey was both exciting and painful and I accept this marathon as an opportunity to be 
mature. First of all, I really appreciate those people who were always there when I had difficult times. Dad, who is my life counsellor, I won t disappoint you. 
Mom! I always miss you and I will definitely keep up the promises. To my eldest sister, thanks for your advice. Special thanks to my second sister, Christina 
for taking care of me with such great food and sorry for making trouble. I will make it up to you later, fo my third sister, you are like my good friend. 
Cheers to your dream. Bumjin! I won t forget the meaningful time we spent together (with Accord). Without you, it would have been impossible to keep 
up with my grade 12 year. Thanks to loonwon (GC prince) and don t forget the fun time we had at UVic! Nicolle Kwon, Physics was so fun. Finally, 
Good luck to my exciting future. 

Whoa! I have wished for this day to come, and it is finally time for me to write this. But to whom? I don t know. What time is it? Umm . . . it says 
1:00am. Am I going to graduate? That is if any university will accept a chronic procrastinator. OK, enough with all my questions. I can t believe that I a 
actually graduating this year. The time at SMUS has gone past really fast. It feels like yesterday I was still in Middle school except NOT, what is this! 
Thanks to everyone who made my time at SMUS enjoyable. I would like to thank the following friends: Luke, Kyu, Winnie. T^iley. lason. Jack. |ag. Surrey, 
Angie and to the rest that I did not mention; great times: pool, ball, poker, party, golf, eating, dinner, driving. I would also like to thank my teachers. Tony 
for always competing with me so I never lost the incentive to work hard, Kevin, Dad, and especially Mom. To all those people wondering if To has ever 
dunked or ever will? Not yet. But I will. . .one day. 


I'm certain that my 3 years here at SMUS can never be beat. First, I want to thank my Mom, Dad and sister for being there for me the whole way 
through and making all of this possible. I love you guys. Yianni, Niko, you guys are my best buds! Those were some good Aberdeen talks Yianni; Niko your 
Drogba celebration is brilliant! Stay in touch, fete, those I AM drives to McDs and talking about how much of a god Henry is are unforgettable! fioz, 
the countless hours spent in Abrioux s room with you have pretty much made me who I am! Conny, 6 chicken mcnuggets is ail I need to say: I 11 see you 
at Octoberfest, buddy. |esse. Dave, Al, lake, |elf, all the boys, you know who you are, thanks for all the good times. Stay in touch. Gids, I love you: can t 
' live without you! Cheers to the best soccer team this school will ever seel We made this extra special, and I will never forget all the memories. Well done 
boys! Stay in touch! Peace guys. Take care of yourselves and good luck in the future! 

Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 200?! 


I would like to thank our grade 10 rugby tour team for an experience that I will never forget. I would like to holler out to Sean, see you next year. Aaron, 
thanks for the help viith the Geo; let's pump the bass. I would like to make a correction, George: I do not drive a lawn mower; it is the Titanic Geo. To. 
my brothers, hope your time left at SMUS is enjoyable. Finally, to my classmates. RUCK on and have fun at university. 

^00/ 200Z 

007 2007 2007 

I m going to try to make this as ORIGINAL as possitle: [Twelve years ago I arrived at the steps of the junior school not knowing much atout who 

I was. what I was doing or where I was going. Now in my final year at this school I realize that not much has changed. It's hard to Leiievc that after 

twelve long, enjoyable years at SMUS I will he leaving this school and setting out on a new journey. From tag on the jungle gym to winning the provincial 

soccer championships, I can genuinely say that my memories at SMUS have been the best of my life. To my friends, thanh you, you guys are the best! 

When I look bach, I will be sure to remember all the fun times we had together. I wish all of the grads good luch in the future. Congratulations we did 


<lnsert favorite memory or Uan nere.> 

All I would like to say after three years at SMUS is that I have made amazing friends. I have innumerable memories of some of the best moments of my life. 
Lets not mention my affections for the colour brown and illegal possessions. On a similar note, I would like to thank the school for my many undescn/ed 
excused absences, which served me well. It has nonetheless allowed me to become a person I don't necessarily dislike after all. On a less serious level, such 
things as our affinity for youngins, poking sessions under the chemist^ table, or countless laughs shall never be forgotten. I must thank the teachers for being 
amazing: Mrs. K, Mr. Young, Mr. Gmeron, Mr. I, Mr. Keble, your presence make my last year unforgettable. All my friends (you know who you are), 
I cant thank you enough for all you ve given me. . .je vous fais de gros bisous! And to the grad class of 2007, I'm going to miss you, so keep in touch! 
Much love to you all, and best of luck in the future! 

As the end of my life at SMUS rapidly approaches, I realize it is too late for some things. It's too late to give Brown Hall another chance to serve 
identifiable food, too late to have an 80's dance, too late to play field hockey in the 6Cs. But I have accepted all of this. I am ready to move on, ready 
for more closet space, for one thing. Parting with my uniform after nine years will be weird, and unfortunately I don't think I will ever be able to wear plaid 
again. It has been too overdone. I would like to thank my Dad for his hours spend proof-reading and his endless to-do lists, and my Mum for her helpful 
k advice and exquisite lunches. Olivia, you ve unintentionally pushed me to work hard to compare with your impressive grades, keep up the classy work. 
I Thank you to my teachers for supplying me with more than just enough knowledge to get by with. Finally, my friends. You've helped me sun/ive the 
r worst, (out-trips in the rain) and experience the best (talking until 3am at slecpovers, fondue and movie nights, and more). As you depart for new, foreign 
places, remember that I will be here in Victoria, expecting stories. My advice? Don t eat anything I wouldn t eat. 

To my fnends: Thanks for eve^thing. Thanks for the laughter. Thanks for always being there for me. Thanks for not taking yourselves too seriously and 
for taking me just seriously enough. To my teammates: You made eady morning workouts and running suicides worth it. Thanks for making me laugh and 
having my back on and off the court/field. \ II miss you guys. Thanks to my teachers, my coaches, and anyone else who helped me out along the way. 'It's 
been such a long time/ I think I should be going, 
I And time doesn t wait for me, it keeps on rolling/ Sail on, on a distant highway/ I've got to keep on chasing a dream/ I've gotta be on my way/ Wish 
there was something I could say. -Boston 


It has been a pleasure growing up with you guys. The past seven years have been the best years of my life; we've gone through and almost overcome fads and 
phases from Yo Momma jokes to lil Jon quotes. We ve had our share of laughs and cries, fortunately more of the first than the latter. I came to SMUS 
in grade 6, and I remember it like it was yesterday. I was eleven years old and scared as hell. Years later, I've lost my braces and replaced them with years of 
' memories, jason, you ve turned into a man, but the gigantic empty bucket of protein still remains a phenomenon, jack, you II always be my evil twin, Wario. 
fo, I ve seen you go through pounds of bread. For the great life at SMUS, I of course thank my parents who always believed in me, and my sister for 
always being there when I needed her. So now we are set free to the wodd, but guys don t be afraid, lust look the woJd in the eyes and say (as my friend 
LL COOL ]AY once said) Momma said knock you out! Cheers Grads. 


Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 200?! 

Do I has a graduation? Yes, I docs! Upon leaving my chrysalis Q years ago, I never would have thought 1 would reach this day. But I has. It s been a long 
road, but relatively straight and smooth other than the occasional deer crossing, but that is to be expected. I found my way past these obstacles with the help 
of my chums, whose nicknames fade with age, but nevertheless shall be written in my memo^ along with the good and bad events of my life at SMUS. 
Shout-outs go to lohn Reid, who has been in 7 years worth of these memories that don t inspire fear in my heart, an admirable trait not shared by all members 
of the faculty. SMUS has treated me well over the years, and the list of good times has grown as fast as the tuition hikes. I therefore bid a fond farewell to 
the grad class of 2007 and i will rejoin you all at the 10-year reunion. It has been a great lurning experience. See you! 


A6CDEFGHIIKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ. Rearrange tkem a tkousanJ ways, throw in some spaces, anij you can say anything: supposedly. I 
try now. First and foremost to Mom and Dad, who have always heen there and have made all of this possitle, thank you. To all teachers, thanfe you 
for your unrelenting attempts to plant a seed in the barren landscapes of my mind. To friends, it is impossible to sum up thirteen years of memories in a few 
words. You know who arc, but if you do not, if in thirty years you read this and still think this was addressed to you: it probably was. Know that I will 
never forget you or the Junior School monkey bars. To poker nights, to hockey, and to good music, all that is unmentionable, and all that is extraordinary 
will remain with me. Thank you. To all of the grads of 07, but most especially to you unnamed few, best of luck and, always, always, watch your back.

Well here s to the END!!:) But it means the we all have to say goodbye:( To the school Goodbye and thanks for pushing me and for getting me to 
whichever university I do get into. To all of the 2007 1st 15 rugby team we ve done very well over the years and let s keep it up. To all the rugby guys on 
both of the tours we had way too much fun!!! RUGBY ROCKS!!!! To all my friends, guys and girls, good luck with the rest of your lives. Hope to see 
you all again. I II miss most of you;) HAHA Just kidding I II miss all of you! 

Since the beginning Andrew, Shane, and Dunk, have continually made fun of me whether it be about the way I talk, the way I dress, or how I spend my 
weekend. Some how through all the harassment, I love them. These boys have taught me how to laugh at myself, and more importantly how to chill out. To 
lane, my boarder friend for life, ' there is not a star in heaven that [you] can t reach . Kailey is probably the only person that really understands the majority 
I of who I am; I don't talk to her enough. Kev you have been the centre of my universe (you keep me sane, provide me with happiriess, and you have been 
the most unreal person of my life), I love you. For all of you that I didn t single out, you know who you are, you have made life here more than I could '. 
have imagined. As for family I LOOOOWWEEE YOU! To the Grads: its important to remember, remember what we were, what we did, who 
we met and what was said: to look back and know that we were the best that could be. See you around. ' 

My 7 years at SMUS have been filled with some of the best, most interesting, and most stressful times of my life. There is no end to the number of 
memories made by all the activities. The Austria Music Tour, volleyball trips. Middle and Sr. School musicals, all the math contests, and never ending 
^^\ calculus sessions, the lunch hours spent talking and laughing, frantic phone calls with homework trouble(bother Chem!) It feels like not that long ago I was in 
\ gr. 6, walking into the Middle School for the first time. Little did I know then what amazing things lay in store for me. Thanks so much to all my teachers, 
I especially Mr. Reid for putting up with me for 7 years and Ms. Rajottc, you re the best ever, thanks for everything! Val, you have been a great friend. I II 
J never forget the fun times in Math. To my family, thanks for helping me through thick and thin. |osh, work hard and you II make it, the end is closer than 
/ you think. Good luck to the Grad class of 07 in your many adventures! 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Faculty, Friends and Family and the St. Michaels Graduating Class of 2007, I wish to say hello and thank you for 
~,„,^ bestowing your honorable presence upon me in the past t years. My time has left me with skills, confidence, memories and friendships. I find myself staring 

\ out into a sea of shining faces, the best and brightest. I see captains of industry and business as well as those who will have careers in medicine, law and 
\ public service. Also, four of you, and Im not free to say which four, will go on to do magnificent work in the photo indust^. No laughing, it s a statisti- 
I cal fact. We are about to embark on a journey into a world unfamiliar to all of us using the skills SMUS has provided. To my friends who have always been 
/ there for me, thanks for the memories, best of luck, always stay in touch. Thanks to my family for supporting me. I love you guys. Finally,good luck to the 
^^ 2007 grad class in your future endeavors wherever they might take you. W 

I've waited solely for this moment and now that it is upon me I am speechless. It's been a long 5 year ride at SMUS, filled with many great times and even 
more lasting memories. To all the teachers, amazing friends, and especially my parents who have guided me through this never-ending labyrintri, a sincere thanbs 
to all you. I doubt I would have ever found the way out without your continual support. I feel honoured to have had the opportunity to take my last few 
I years of high school here and meet so many wonderful people. Thanks to my best friends Daniel, Kevin, Nick, and Aaron for all the good times and I hope 
we keep in touch. If you ever hear an explosion reverberating from the direction of the labs, it clearly indicates that Drennan is on his spare. An-I ^-"<''' 
glad to be with you [Grads of 2007], here at the end of all things. -LotR 

To the Vlf s: Tim Chan, you are an idiot, but a good friend: what else can I say, I II miss you. Gordon, You, me, we can make it beautiful! Liz, great 

chat about the one whose name must not be spoken. Lughs AhRom. Glad you are always here: I m going to miss you. Rochclle, next year, I II have to 

make a new schedule without you in it, which is a lot of spares. What more can I say? You are special to me. lustin, keep upgrading your room; I II pay 

a visit someday. Vincc, let s just see if I'm at your university. Gloria, remember the trust. Winnie, we went to the same middle school, bankrupted together, 

I now finally we are going to different universities. I'll miss you. My buddies, remember our Uther s Party, you know who you were. Boarding life at SMUS 

is absolutely transforming, and Im going to miss it. My gradel2 year is a mess and I love it so much. Chilling on the field, the middle school, the gym, my 

j/^ room, your room were intense and exciting. Finally, I m out or here. ■

^ I wouldn't have it any other way. Kate - we've made high school quite the adventure. There will always be someone to provide comfort on those late night 
Ikl tossers, come along on endless scenic drives, approve of inappropriate behaviour, indulge in the occasional fistfight, & above all LUV' 

^ either of us to forget that. My family - we've been through literally everything together. Thanh you for the endless love & support. Lveryone I ve lovea aionc 
W the way - thanh you for being a part of the happiest moments and memories of my life so far. The Class of 'O? - I wouldn t be who I am without you.

1 sisters, vaood luc 

first and foremost, I would like to thank my mom and dad who have supported me with endless love and opportunities. I LOVE YOU!! 1 am so grateful 
to have been given such a chance to experience SMUS and boarding life. SMUS rewarded me with lifelong lessons, great teachers, and friends that will 
remain a big part of my life. My best grade 12 friends, I will never forget the past two years living with you. lung Ah-Rom, we will long for f ujiya even if we 
become millionaires! You and I must start getting used to eating less. . . liMin! I will miss our late night talks. . . Sandra, live a happy life as a lady ! Sharon, 
keep your nest growing on your head! It's so STYLISH! The rest of my friends, you know who you are. You guys were all such good sisters. Good luck to 
all of class 2007. VIVAT!!! 

Let's just say I've changed a lot in my time at SMUS. Whether it's because of SMUS, the people in SMUS, or the aliens, it doesn t matter; it happened 
while 1 was at this school. Michael, you have transformed the way 1 think about life. . . there will always be a rhythm beating in me because of you. I d 
like to thank Mrs. Rajotte for being the best teacher in the world, and Mr. Kerr and Mr. Leggatt for all the time and effort you put into the soccer team. 
i You gave me the best years of soccer I will ever have. My family, thank you for tolerating me, especially in my procrastination, anger, and rebellious phases. 
The three stooges (plus AD who have (affectionately) christened me 'mess', may you all crash in Christophe's Geo. Iggi, I love you. All my other ninja . 
minions whom I can't name for obvious reasons, continue the mission. Congrats grad class. Good luck wherever you go; don t do drugs, stay in school, 
don t drink and drive 

SMUS, it's like a new pair of underwear. At first it's constricting, but after a while it becomes a part of you. After being at this school for 8 years you 
start to feel a lot like Alice, tumbling down the rabbit hole. Once you find you feet and start running though, you start to meet some great people. Zach, 
Duncan, Shane, lohnson, Lucas, Ajit, fete, 6ozy, we have had some super awesome raging sweet times. If only there was a magical land that we could go 

)to that would let these times continue. . . single tear. Tori, you're the reason I succeeded at all at school. I've learned a lot, but the most important thing is 
that it doesn't matter where you arc; it s the people that you re with. 
"Did you ever see that 'Twilight Zone" where the guy signed a contract and they cut out his tongue and put it in a jar and it wouldn t die; it just grew and 
pulsated and gave birth to baby tongues? fretty cool, huh; Garth Algar 

13 years ago I entered the doors of SMUS unaware of what 1 would learn and become. Now as I look back over those years and all those awkward stages 
that came along, I understand how valuable of an aspect SMUS has been in my life. 1 have made so many friendships that will last a lifetime and to all of 

)you I cannot even begin to explain how thankful I am. To my family, you made this all possible. Mom and Dad, you pushed me all the way and were there 
for me when I wanted to push back. Sasha and Simon thank you for all the support and Sasha, yes, I will admit it, thank you for the. . . competition. My 
time at SMUS has been more crazy than the wildest roller coaster on earth and I would not have liked it any other way. To the grad class, keep in touch 
and hopefully I will one day see some of you published in 'f orbes 500," and you see me in "GO," but until that day best of luck in your endeavours. 
"Our candle burned out long before our legend ever will. I eat barbs for breakfast. VIVA I ! 

Oh how wonderful! How truly eloquent. . ..oh I couldn't perhaps just a peek, oh they are even more cherishable than 1 could have ever contemplated. 

You say 1 may touch, for me to touch such glorious creatures my heart may explode, or implode or skip a beat. . . .but the temptation is wrenchingly 

tantalizing. So soft they are, so universally perfect. I must stroke and grope this haven of heaven. I must bow my head. This is the symbol of all awesome- 

ness, all creation, all evolution, infinity forever. Oh I cannot. . ..I am not worthy of such privilege. . ..please. . ..I. . .must. . .oh. . .can't resist. . kiss 

to be born. . .to kiss is to die. Oh kneecaps glorious KNEECAPS oh my such oneness. . .oh bellowous, benevolent, banquet of beauty, you doom of 
ecstasy, you intoxicant of the radical. . .you are the shinning puddle of water. 

To my 30.year.old Andre, as you reminisce while reading this paragraph you should know three things, l) High school rocked and the people you surrounded 

yourself with were bloody awesome. 2) You were a pirate in love with a maiden named Rye. 3) Your mother is the reason you are where you are now,

I ve been told t^lat this gracJ write-up will matter to me in tnirty years. To keep tnis in perspective the same teacher preaching this, has admitted to forgetting 
entirely, his own grad dinner/dance. As far as I can tell, he turned out alright, and so 1 have to thank him for teaching me two things: that high school isn t 
as important as we might think, and to love language. 1 have Mr. Gauthier to thank for the opportunities to take part in the French Revolution, sail on a 
pirate ship, dance the salsa, and tccome a close friend to jesus. Music mentors: all different, all passionate - you ve added much depth. Fnends, family, you 
dragged me through these 5 years and that is worth some praise. Last, Andy - always holding steady, a light In my life. 

I've been at SAAUS since 1998 and I've seen many of my peers grow to tKe keigKt they arc today Tkanks to SAAUS, I can t .magine having a more 
privileged liigk school experience. Special thanks to the Outdoor Leadership program for some of my best days spent A:th the school, skmg mountaintops to 
white water kayaking with friends were first-rate. To the soccer and field hockey teams, we weren t always victorious bLiC I .e never had sc much fun on the 
field. To my parents, thanks for supporting me all the way, 1 don t know where you found the patience tmma thanks for being the ult.mate big s ster I o 
1 Andrew, you always made me laugh and smile. And of course, thanks to the mischievous group of characters I m protiC to call my friena:s. for the sweetest 
memories of high school wouldn t have amounted to much without you. This grade has been the best, a class apart I m proud to have been a part of \Jraa 
class 2007. 

1 will never forget the day in Middle School when AAcKyla and I lay in the middle of the field under the sun as we daydreamed of being sixteen, the perfect 
age, while our kilt tans grew darker. Soon enough, we will hang up our uniforms for good and I will no longer be found incredibly stressed in a corner of the 
library furiously studying or locked in AAs. Rajotte s room tackling derivatives. To all my friends who have asked where I disappear to for weeks on end at 
school, my secret s out. AAs Brooke: basketball is nothing without you; Provincial girls; Ria s infectious giggle is a permanent reminder of our unforgettable 
week in Kamloops. I apologize to my teachers for always asking too many questions. To my family. I m sorry for all the trouble I ve caused and to Vlcki 
you II always be my biggest competition and my only older sister. From an amazing trip to Japan, outdoor leadership with mischievous grade tens and the 
nights we laughed and danced our lives away, I have no regrets. 

They tell me these grad write-ups are kind of a big deal, like everything at SAAUS. I now find myself attempting to compose one of un.que eloquence and 

nour. . .but alas, originality fails me. So to avoid further corniness here s what I take from SAAUS: I no longer dread the words skip class, |ane Who*^ 
never gets old for others, if you wait too long and do not carry firearms people (i.e. me) will never return your money, and pretending that you understand 
k the teacher is a cruel, masochistic game of lying to yourself. I may not be able to create quotes of genius (proof .s before you), but 1 now jndersLand A A 

AAilne s words a little better. 'Pooh.' 'Yes Piglet? 'Nothing, said Piglet, taking Pooh s paw. I just wanted to be sure of you With luck, when I rer 
' this in the future, 1 will A) not induce vomiting due to my shameful narcissism, and d) understand Piglet s words again and more 
'AAay I never be complete. AAay I never be content. AAay 1 never be perfect. - Chuck Palahniuk 

Big thanks to all faculty and staff for their endless support and an even bigger thanks to the boarding community ana my parents for their encouragement 
for me, the multiculturalism had a huge impact. Spending the last two years with guys from around the world was an experience that I cannot desi nbe m 
words. AAaking close connections with the grades above and below was both an honour and a privilege All aspects of school such as sports, jom 
ing school musicals, signing out to go downtown, house outings, late nights staying up, all contribute to the fun m boarding Very rarely could I have 
experienced anything similar to this anywhere else in the world. To those in Barnacle, the house parents, and all the 50 brothers that I resided with the last 2 
years, thank you for your time. I only hope that you have enjoyed it as much as I have. To those I was close to among day students and other boarding 
houses, best wishes and thank you. Once again, it was a great honour. 

Am I here already? Seems like time has gone so fast, and what has seemed initially like such a big feat has been accomplished' I would like to thank my 
three amazing big sisters for always being there, my mom and dad for all your support through the years and my grandma and futti who have always given 
110% for me, without you I would never have been able to accomplish any of my dreams. To my best German friend in the whole wide world. I will miss 
^ you unbearably , but I know no matter what distance you will always be there for me. Thanks for always holding my hand. Soul mates; I thmk so. Julie 
J DeGa I love you with all my heart, our scandalous nights will never be forgotten. Cass lady, what can I say we are practically sisters. Dixie, cheers to escap- 
ing in yo mama s big red van, brownies and star gazing. Peggy. I m so glad that we had this year together. Pieffy, you are the greatest Iriend I could nave 
ever asked for. To all the rest of my awesome friends (you know who you are), I want to thank you for all the late night chats, movie /corree nights, and 
yummy dinners. Congrats Grad class! Dance hard, love lots, and never have any regrets! 

I came to SMUS in grade II, intimidated by the size and talents of the school. In the past two years, I ve had some awesome times. I II never forget the 
procrastination, late night movies, rugby practices on rainy days, the pranks by Constantin while I slept, am lots more. I thank my parents for sending me here 
and always being on my side through the whole experience; my uncle and aunt in Vancouver; and my brother too. I hanks to all my teachers for their com- 
mitment to my success. To my friends, thanks for everything. Connie, it s been an awesome two years. I won t forget the 7:50s half of grade II, the pranks, 
our alarm clocks, that button that plays the ... you know. Thanks to Scott, my other roommate. Andre, you owe me for physics- Joseph and Kyan, to good 
times with great pizza, and Ryan thanks for the chocolate. To the Bolton guys and Wendy, you guys are awesome, jag and Jason, thanks for having me 
over those times. Jane, calc was fun. To the future of SAAUS, good luck. ^,_^ ^^^

I appeared as a little II year old in an oversized tiazer, not Lowing a soul, Ut after 6 years oF SMU I tfiink I am finally ready to peace this scene in tfie 
blazer that fits, though having said that I can't even hcgin to imagine my life without this school and eve^one who goes with it, our standard adventures will 
always te remembered: from the Big T sittings with the chip, countless car camp-outs, classy summer afternoons at the "yacht club , with the captain by our 
side, the cheerio incident and ocean 'sessions'. Of course to the Desolation Sound nights and to the crew: 'the deck mystery', forever unsolved, but we have 
our suspicions. And to you: always remember that Ohanna means family, family means no one gets left behind, or forgotten. Never forget. To my parents 
and to my brother, thank you. Thank you for my world and everything in it, I promise to make you proud. To the grad class of 2007: 1 love you all, and 
don't forget to leave your mark. Life is ours. Live it laughing. 

^^^sbII , „ ,,,.,„ 

My five years at SMU have been the best five years of my life. From outdoor adventure trips, to road trips, to memorable tours to the UK I will never 
forget these years of my life. To all of my friends, you know who you are and thank you. Yians and Necks, what needs to be said? Making sure each 
sports team we played on since grade 6 is a winning one: Priceless. I love you guys. 6oz, words can't describe the amount of times I've neady passed out 

guys, no class can teach. To my family; Liz, Dave, Mom and Dad, thanbs for being the peopi 

Irads; I wish all of you the best of luck in the future. Remember: 'The difference between '

; real, and it was run, but it wasn t real fun. 

Six years at this school have taught me a great deal and, though this may be nauscatingly clicked to say so, most of it cannot be Found amongst my scribble 
notes or essays. I have watched our class grow with each year until it has become the group of infuriatingly talented and ruggedly good-looking individuals tk 
fill these pages. First, of course, the gratitude that usually remains unspoken: thanks to my parents for giving me the opportunity, the freedom, and the support; 
quite literally, I could not have done anything without you. 

To my friends, though again it may usually go unsaid, I could not have asked for a better group of people with which to waste my time. To my fellow grads: 
I wish you happiness above all else, above money, fame, status or tangible success. You are a more talented and inspiring group of people than you may ever 
realize and I am better off for having known you. A bow to the grads, a nod to the teachers, cue the music. Good night, and good luck. 

This year marked the end to a new beginning. It was the best ending I could have ever imagined. It's not often that you meet characters like I did, so full of 
compassion and excitement. Thanks to everyone who crossed my path, if you walked beside me, I followed you, or even if you cut me off. You have made 
your mark on me. And if you made me cry there is no doubt I won't forget you. To all of my friends, we've made the memories that 1 will talk about for 
ages. Mom, thanks for being guaranteed support. You're great at what you do and you have made me beautiful. Dad, thank you, for whatever it is you do 
that always makes everything ok. Lo, though I had to do the last year without you, growing up would've never happened if you weren t there for the first 
seventeen years. Andre, our love will never get old. To all my friends, it's been just what we've needed, all the time. I love you. Let's Bounce. 


Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 200?! 

13 years I have been here for, never thought 1 would miss it more; 1 ve had some good times here at SMU: its been fun hanging out w,th all ol you; I never 
thought that this time would come; I've been waiting 13 years to become an alumni here at school called SMU. 1 II miss you all, more than you II know; 
\ Good times at Renees making grilled cheeses yo; Zach, lohnson, Lucas, Duncan and Ro, Rarksville will be epic can t wait to go. 1 o the lifers we ve been 
\ here for way too long. We have even memorized the S.M.U.S song. To the soccer team, now its time to put smu to the test: Can any new grads step 
- up to beat the best? Match Craig Gorman's freekick? Or that hard shot by Nic? We've had strength in the middle; the power up front; our defence was 
U solid and we had lessie K's Punt. We've been the best and have the trophies to prove it, now it's time for someone else to think they can do it. It s Ume 
y for us to finally get going. It will be hard because we don't know what's coming, but I'm, happy to leave because I m leaving knowing, that the epic Uuad 
'^ will keep tne gooa times flowing. „^___^___^ 


I arrived on the first day of grade nine, unsure of wiiat I was getting myself into. Uttle did I know that countless hours over the next few years would be 
spent studying in the library, running suicides in the gym, and slide tacRiing in the mud on the soccer field. I couldn t have imagined the benefits of th 
long, and sometimes tedious hours, but somehow it all came together in the end. from placing third at basketball provincials (and the movie ), to going to 
Hawaii with the soccer team, 5 am sunrise surfs in Tofino, and backountry skiing in the May sunshine, it s been an amazing four years! To my parents and 
brother; thank you for pushing me to t^ my hardest and go after my dreams. Galium, you ve always been there for me with a big hug when I needed it. I 
love you. To all of the grads, I wish you the best of luck in the future. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. 

Wow, I can't honestly believe that my time at SMU is finally over. Without a doubt I m going to miss this place. It s been a surreal ride and I have had 
the most outrageous times with all of my buddays . We ve had so many unforgettable memories at parties and on the field that will never be lost in my mind. 
This was our year, boys, and I know we made the best of it. Ill never forget all of our sporting accomplishments and how hard we had to work for them. 
All of those 330 s and pouring rain practices were worth eve^ minute. To the giJs. lets just say you re a crazy bunch, but I loved eve^ second of high 
school with all of you. To the family, thanks for all of your support throughout my high school career, because let s face it without you I wouldn t be where 
I am today. Next step is University and I m hoping that it shows me as good a time as SMU did. Thanks again to my homies and family, and Congrats to 
the grad class of 07. Stay in touch with yourselves, feace. 

I started my journGy at SAAUS in grade one. My kigWight in the junior scliool was playing hide n go seek at Duncan s house. I was kind of afraid of 
getting stolen if I hid in a garbage can. Middle school was a tough transition. My high school years: I discovered my true self as a musician: writing sad love 
songs about girls, composing pieces about betrayal and then singing out my ecstasy. . . stealing kisses from your midnight lips , Lighthouse, fhuket. . . I hank 
you Hamilton for demanding I be honest about what I want, my freckles are gone. Andre: Hey buddy, josh: DaijouDu.' Alex: 1 m straps. Aaron: I hanks 
for the math help plus other things. Ill get you some super lemons! Thanks to my band, lake: Keep playing those cool bass parts. Ian: 1\ock beat. Michael: 
' Blues. The Ko legacy goes on. Mom and Dad, thanks for the junior, middle, and senior opportunities, especially my months spent as a pirate lad, Frederic 
• of duty. A bevy of beautiful maidens! 

Five years in SMUS passed so quickly. I gained priceless memories and met amazing people whom 1 will never forget. I just want to thank my 
family and all my friends for supporting me. I love you all. 

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them. 
/ -Walt Disney 

As hard as it is to believe, my high school days have come to an end. My three years at SMUS have definitely prepared me for the coming years in life. 
Mom and Dad, thank you for being so supportive and for always believing in me. I would not be who I am today without everything you guys have taught 
me. I love you guys and I hope I made you proud. To my teachers, thanks for everything I have learned. To the Starbucks crew, we ve had some amazing 

) times. To my girls, I don t even know where to begin. I II never forget our trips to Mt. Tolmie, the rujiya runs, the Croc, ana countless times of I never . 
The 3U798023545 times spent on the party bus with the legendary Anthony will always have a special place in my heart. You girls have always been able 
to make me laugh. Our nights of tears, drama, and laughter will never be forgotten. GG s for life. To the grad class of 2007. best of luck and take care. 
Le Tig re Out. 

Goming to SMU has been a life changing experience for me and I cannot believe that my two years have finally come to an end. A lot has happened and I 
have met many amazing people. 1 want to thank my parents and my bros for all the help and support. To all my boys, the time with you was unreal: I loved 
Partying Wild, playing sports and having the best laughs with you guys - memories, which I II never forget! And thanks for having me over so many times. 
i Ladies, thank you all for making my two years so crazy and so much fun! To all my Dolton Buddies: we were definitely the funniest and best-looking boarding

' great meals together in Brown fHall! Germans - Looking fonvard to seeing you back in Germany! My Rayeez - you re the best roommate ever. Sorry for all 
the pranks and for running around naked all the time haha! Best luck to all the grads this year. 

For me, junior school was all about recess, pizza-day, the computer lab, and episodes of Bill Nye the Science Guy. In the middle school, I acted in Oliver, 
enjoyed some great classes, went to japan, tried the oboe, and was introduced to u-15 soccer and nightleague basketball. When my days in the senior school 
arrived 1 took part in Outdoor Leadership, I.C.S., councils, went to Australia, Austria, and Hawaii, became a prefect, had amazing teachers, enjoyed spares, 
sports. Strings, and lunches in the music building. To the grad class, I hope you all end-up doing what you love and what you are most passionate about. 
You really are the most amazing group of people. Lastly, I would like to give a special thank-you to my mum for encouraging me to come to St. Michaels 
in grade four, oh so many years ago. 'You shall above all things be glad and young/ For if you re young, whatever life you wear/ it will become you; and if 
you are glad/ whatever s living will yourself become. (£.£. Cummings)

As I settle myself in tke sofa, I take my note and pen and begin to madly scribble down 4.5 years wortk of accumulated recollections akout my time in 
SMUS. I look back, only to find myself kaving spent years overflowing witk priceless memories. Before 1 step out tke door to Graduation, 1 would like to 
sincerely tkank my parents and my sister Hae Kyo for always providing me witk wonderful support and everlasting kappiness. Also, I can never forget my eack 
and every friend from all across tke globe, wko kelped me endure tke gruesome 4.5 years in sckool and actually made it blossom into wonderful memories in 
SMUS. finally, to all my tcackers including Mr. Taylor, Ms. Frascr, Mrs. Murtland, and Tkumm Sensei, wko made tkis moment possible. Tkank you, and 
wisk all GRAD 2007 witk kest possible wiskes! 

5 years kave passed and made me grow up as a strong and independent person. 1 would like to tkank my parents for making me study in tkis great sckool. 

I am really glad tkat I can end my kigk sckool years witk great memories.To all my teackers: Tkank you so muck for kelping me to adapt well in tkis sckool. . 

To all my friends: So-Hyun,you will be tke one wko I cannot forget in my life. Tkc time tkat I spent witk you will be tke kappiest and tke most unforgct- 
\ table.Ak-rom, I was really kappy to kave a person like you as a friend. Tkank you so muck for 4 years. Gonzie, you migkt be tke most positive and funniest 
' 1 person 1 kave never known. It was really good to see you and kave you as a friend and a sister. Let's keep in touck!! Sandra, I am glad tkat we became 

closer before graduating. Good luck witk everytking. jung-moon, my younger sister, tkank you so muck for kelping and caring for me tkose two years. 1 will 

never forget tkose years 1 kave spent witk you. Luv Ya. 

People try to find patterns in tkeir lives because tkey want to predict outcomes. As a proof, we made matkematics, wkick is based on regular patterns. 1 love 
matkematics because tkey never lie. However, I kave come to love sciences more. Sciences are about nature, wkick is full of unexpected tkings, so tkat we 
cannot dare to find regularity in it. Wkat I am really trying to say is, do not limit yourself by calculating your situation. A pattern can sometimes prepare 
' you for certain results; kowever, it sometimes limits your ckanccs. For instance, you know your grade is low and tkink you would not be able to make into 
Ivy League, so wkat you do is you just give up. Tkis is no good. Life is fun because unexpected tkings kappen. Believe in and get used to irregularity. It will 
come often and sometimes put you from tke nadir to tkc apex of your life. 

In my three years at SMUS, lots of tkings happened, kut I was able to get tkrougk tkcm. I couldn't do it witkout, most importantly, my family. My 
parents are always tkere. I couldn't kave made it tkis far witkout tkem. Tkank you, you are tke best. Also, 1 would like to tkank my sis wko was always 
tkere to support me wken I needed it, I believe I have learned a lot in SMUS especially in tke boarding community. Tkree years at SMUS makes me a more 
independent person. To my friends: Henry, tkanks for always being tkere for me and kelping me wken I needed it (calc!!). PoPo, tkanks for always driving us 
everywkere, especially to McDonalds; don't worry, I'll drive you next time! lesse. Ken, Kevin, jack, Ian, Eric, Nick, Margaret, Liz Eng, Alice, otker friends 
' tkat I missed out, tkanks for all of your support, care and love. To my special person: Tkanks for always being witk me. Peally appreciated. I will never forget 
you all and keep in touck, will miss you all. Grad of 2007, best of luck and take care! 

Hard to believe my 5 years of kigk sckool life kas finally come to an end, and belong to a group call GPAD 07! Looking back at wkat I ve been tkrougk 
and gained, memories are what I'll bring with me in my life. Many thanks to my parents for all tke unlimited support and opportunities. 1 kope I made you

1 still mnenixt tlw day vAxn I gave my dad a long hug and said goodbye in front of Winslow. Tfie fiist 2 months at SAAUS were the toughest time ever, 
and it was lull of tears. Yet. at SMUS. I have gained so much. Many thanhs to the houseparents for their care in the last two years; Mrs Shinner for her

Ding, Mr Taylor for their guidance. AAargaret Yau, thanhs for tolerating my complaints and whines when I got stressed. Also, thanks for spending endless

help me to relax. I am going to miss the time we had so much. All the best to the Grads of 20071 

All the good times here at SMUS are never going to be forgotten. Between the doing homewodi at 4 am to the Titanic sinking, all the Fugiya njns during 
the spares and lunch, the facebook drama, the musical, and good ol boarding. This is to everyone who believed that 1 could go the distance and had feith in 
me not being a basket weaver when 1 grow up. Mom. Dad. |osh, Alex and Zach thanks for always being there, jenn (the other one), you made the final 
year that more enjoyable, puddle jumping, the scary movies from which I ve been scarred for life, the quote book, downtown ludis and Kate for the all dancing 
to Starbucks. Mr. Gauthier. the teacher who I actually could talk to. All my friends' thanks for an amazing year it could not have been the same without 
you and all the memories we shared. Good Luck to J the Grads of 007. 

"The end? No. the beginning!' To sum up my 2 unforgettable years at SMUS in one short paragraph would be impossible. The ride wouldn t have been the 

same without a few distinct individuals. To Kimmie. Deeds, Ty, Bish. you are my sisters. To Mr. and Mrs.A. I love you! To eve^ Yukoner. thank you for 

the strength and support. To all who inspired me. believed in me, cried with me, ran with me, sang with me, danced with me, kicked it with me, loved with

' Dad, thank you for showing me how to tnjiy appreciate jimmy Hendrix, and how to question the universe. Stephi, thanks for letting me win just because you 

know I have to. I love you! 

Coming to SMUS four years ago was a big change from what I was used to. Coming from a farming community into a boarding community was a shock. 
The people were different, the culture was different, and the food was especially different. It took awhile, but I got the hang of it Not only has SMUS 
given me a great education, but I have also met many new people and tried many new things. Thanks to my parents for giving me the opportunity to come 
here, and for always believing that I could do it. Karolina. you kept me grounded through the many twists and turns of grade 12. To all my friends, thanks 
guys. From njgby to boarding, you guys made my years here a great time. I have to say a special thanks to my teachers for putting up with me, and always 
' pushing me to do my best. Last but not least to the jacksons, who for four years, dealt with the trouble 1 caused. Thank you. So to the grad class of 2007, 
it took awhile, but we finally did it. Good luck with everything guys, and keep in touch. 

The past five years at SMU have been unforgettable. I am grateful for having the opportunity to play Soccer, Basketball and Rugby for the school and the 
memories of the triumphs and trophies will always be remembered. 1 vwjuk) like to thank all the coaches who have helped me along the way. your on and off 
the field guidance has been invaluable to me. Also thanks to all the teachers who have been more than willing to help me along the way Boys thanks for all 
the parties, wodiouts, Fifa games and love sessions we went through. 1 can t forget the road-trips eitfwr. Gids you ve all been amazing thanks for everytfiing.

and making sure everything is just right. Good luck to all of you, cya soon! 

Tl\irteen years at SMUS and I am finally ready to leave the 'bubble" and discover how remarkable the world can be. To the gids: thanks for listening to my 
stories even if only I thought they were funny, for deciphering my mumbling and for making me laugh when I needed to the most. Kate: countless trips to the 
V 'Big T," my underestimated listening skills and the infamous quote, "1 think you're scared." Steph: "Wake up! Our tent is going to collapse! Don t worry, 
1 we II deal with it in the morning." -when you re not in my life, my wodd isn t the same. Mckyla: a part of my life since the beginning; 1 love you. 1 o the 
' guys: with two brothers by my side, you still found a way to show me some of the best times and to protect me from the worst. Yianni and Niko: I would 
be lost without you. To my parents: you taught me what I needed to know and let me make my own mistakes; I thank you for who 1 am I love you 
both. To the Grads. follow your hearts and show the wodd wfiat it has been missing. _w 

1 started out at SMUS in grade 8 and from then on things have been great. First, to my family, thanks for being there every step of the way Without your 
support, none of this would have been possible. To all the boys, you know who you are. thanks for everything we ve been through these past few years. The 

(Soccer. Basketball, and Rugby trips were awesome and I will have those memories for the rest of my life. To the girls, thanks for being there, you are aUays 
fun. To my coaches and teachers, thanks for helping me out along the way. Your guidance has made my time here much more enjoyable. Finally, congratula- 
tions grad class of 2007 and best of luck in the future. ' ^^ 



In graJe eigk. I nervously tugged on my pigtails and tkc kot breath from my lips constantly Fogged up my ckerry red glasses. The sweat began to gloss over 
my back and my bands pulled at the bottom of my new bilt as if I was twitcbing. I remember tbinbing bov 

to evolve. Suddenly I could write essays and talk in front of a class. I bnew bow many ligbt years it is to tbe sun, wben tbe first known piece of art was 
created, and tbe rbytbm for a dotted sixteenth note. Most importantly 1 was taugbt bow to believe in myself. Witb I 
I ambition, acceptance and confidence. It's as if I bave tbe power to do anything. So do you! Grads of 2007, lust fielieve.' I will never forget the people 
who guided me down the right paths. Thank you teachers, my family and friends, and last but certainty not least, my lordan. Without you I would not be 
the person I have become today. I graduate standing tall, confident, proud, grateful and optimistic. I am smiling. 

At times in life you find yourself in a situation where the inevitable has happened. The thing that was so far away is here, and when it comes it hits you like 
a brick. This is one of those times. So let's have some fun witb it! Back in tbe day, 1994, I came to this school knowing little more than one plus one, two 
plus two and just barely how to tie my shoe. But now I'm old and now I know, just what friends can do in Tofino. Thanks to the Yeti, Johnson, Gorman 
and Lucas, so sweaty. To Mom and Dad, you guys weren't bad, so I want to thank you like mad. So where from here, my friends so dear? On to a 
much bigger, faster, better thing; a thing so great, a thing so crazy that you'll wish you weren't so lazy. From days where we d play catch witb a koosb to 
days where all we say is 'Shane's a. . .' Never mind. But this thing, so great and vast, will make a million memories last and one day I hope will bring friends 
together to once more sing: Vivat! That was fun, good luck everyone. Tcace. 

Wow, what a journey! There is a limitless list of people to thank for my successes and experiences here, because I met so many amazing people. To all my 

friends and fellow lifers, I can't imagine how I would have survived these years without you. Girls, thanks for making me smile wben I needed it the most. 
\ Late-night swims, soccer road trips, stolen cats and snowy campouts ■ I wish I could re-live every laugh. Boys, thanks for showing me tbe humour in eve^ 
J situation ■ I miss you already. To tbe rents, thanks for supporting me through every decision, whether you agreed or not. I know it was tough to sit by and 
7 watch, but you did an amazing job. And of course, Huf, thanks for teaching me there's more to life than an A . I'll miss you and our Uam chats. Looking 

back on my years at SMUS, I would have to say that it wasn't always a walk in the park, but given the chance, I would do it all again. Advice to next 

year's grads ■ enjoy evc^ day. When you feel what we feel now, you II know why. 

I've officially closed my last high school textbook, attended my last meeting, consumed my last bite of Brown Hall cookie, had my final bow on tbe Mcf her- 
son stage and spent my final spare being useless in tbe library. The past four years bave been busy and unreal. I've come out where I predicted: content, 

\ excited, a little bit sad. For tbe Rogers gals who have been around since the days of Spice Gid role-play, and for those I have met since Grade 9, thanks for 
) the lessons, wisdom, and especially tbe laughs. I've enjoyed 'chill' nights, "crazy' nights, themed dinners and our ownership of tbe music building. For all tbe 

] gids- you know bow to make me smile, you've made SMUS home, thanks for being so amazing! My teachers, I appreciate all that you bave done for me. 
Dad, Cam and Beth, you are extraordina^! Mom, no word count could ever be adequate to express my love for you. Grads, I'm proud of us! flease make 

your upcoming years absolutely exceptional! 

It's been a crazy three years at SMUS, full of walks to nowhere, adventures everywhere, loser dancing, and of course. Dr. Pepper. There were also many 
awesome people I've got to remember. Abra, you're the best roomie ever. And next year, fight for the bed by the window. Asha, I feel a little safer knowing 
that you'll always appear wben I least expect you - and need you the most! Chuckles, it's all right, and it's all good. To my crazy crew from Winslow (you 
know who you are): you guys made this year the best. Mrs. Tweedie, thank you for everything. You truly are wonderful. Mr j, I'm going to have to find 
someone new to tease, and I'll always cheer for the SMUS RFTT team, knowing that you're behind them. You (and geology) rock my socks right off. 
Peace out, eve^body. 

I came to SMUS for my grade 12 year so I would bave a new experience and gain useful knowledge in order to pull mad scrilla in the future. Sick props to 
all my friends, and especially my infinitely patient room-mate Joseph, who has probably developed a very low opinion of people from Courtenay. St Michaels 
has helped me to decide what to do in my future, but also provided the means to get there. While it in no way comprises my entire high school education, 
it has been a suitable climax. My three years up-island at Vanier definitely set the stage for the transformation wrought upon me here. I d like to apologize to 
all my teachers for every late assignment, and thank them, especially those at SMUS and in the Explore program at Vanier, for arming me witb tbe tools to 
seize my future. While this is tbe end of my life as I know it, I think tbe best part is about to start. 


Four Years of chilling witb the girls, four years of wild partying, four years of late night visits to McDonalds. These were the best four years of my life. I w,ll 
always remember the times and memories I have shared with each and everyone one of you! Brownsenberg, you are a legend, I will never forget you. Danke 
Mimi und Papa, ich werd euch vermissen! And thank you for all the support you have given me. Tom.Vince, ich liebe eucblVio, you're my role model, len 
- rolling in your car at 3 in the morning, visib to the infirmary, eating endless amounts of blizzards, was the highlight of grade eleven. Lena, you belong to 
me! Cbey.trying to help you hitting on all the German boys. You're unreal. Rye ■ I love yoxi till the cows come home. Mc - thank you for always being 
' there, witb cake at my door. Ria- driving to Mac's b4 class to get some 'teabags', you're amazing. To the rest and tbe boys, you made everything even 
more unforgettable. Now its time to go our own ways, and I hope all of you choose to do what you love to do! Yours truly, Olivia 




As I vwite tliis. 1 cannot \>Jmn how fast tliese last 4 yeais of fiigh sdmol have gone by. Hxse last b«o yeais at SMUS have heen unforgettable and have 
provided me with many experiences. The knowledge that 1 have gained throughout my schooling will hopefully never leave me. I want to thanh my parents, my 
brother and my sister for giving me this opportunity and allowing me to leave home one year early. Mum. you have made me the person I am today. I love 
you. To my brothers: &>nnie. these last two years would not have been possible without you. Andre, things just seemed to escalate too quickly, eh? To the 
rest of my friends - great memories and we II see each other soon. These years were the best. To the grad class of 07. best of luck! 

^^&DSS% 1 

4 yean in SMUS have passed, and i can't believe I have graduated this year! So many things have happened through these 4 years, ups and downs, but 
all memorable- I've met many great friends that I won't forget. Keep in touch! Thanks to my teachers and special thanks to my parents for their love and 
support. Glo. next year maybe a little bit different, but you'll be fine! Ah-Rom. I'll definitely miss you. I wont forget the talk and the days that we shared. 
Vannie. wow. reduce your "cold jokes' and don't miss me too much. Surrey, I won t forget all the time we spent. Remember to buy me a dinner when you 
start your episode 1. Winnie, we couldn't get over the Mario still. Chloe. summer school and watching drama is unforgettable. Elton, don t miss me too 
much. A/\akiyo. Blen. )i-Mn. Sandra. Tommy, Rachel, take care. Rochelle, Lz. Alo. Myung. Andrew. Karri, wei-wei. good luck and enjoy the last year! 
Timmis Gids, Timmis is what? RED.HOT! GRAD 2007, best of luck & take care. We made it! 

1 am sitting here, writing this paragraph at my computer, the site of my many mental frustrations in the form of essays, which more often than not turned into 
a rage against the machine. However, those former tasks pale in comparison to this grad write-up. What shall I write? How will I be remembered? How 
will 1 remember myself in 30 years? In the end, it comes down to memories with friends and family. To my friends: thank you. It s been one heck of a 
ride and I wouldn't have traded it for the world- All those poker and pool nights were fantastic. It's too bad I m pretty atrocious and get slaughtered every 

\ time. To my parents: you are unbelievable. It's hard to imagine a stronger foundation you could have given me. To my teachers: thank you tor sharing your 

/ wisdom vinth me (and the countless essays assigned). And finally to Renee: you are amazing. I don t know how you manage to be everything I could ever 

ask for but you arc. Thank you all for tlie most memorable times of my life. 

. I-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-IO-II-B-I3 interesting long years. I think I can tell myself that I've lived happily, successfully, and to my fullest. 1 nnean eve^one has some < 

regrets: procrastinating, annoying the wrong teacher, unzipping the wrong person, arriving late eve^ day, missing the highest and loudest note every time in pit 
orchestra. Yet. at the same time there remain shimmers of fun. intelligence, and ingenuity: so many good times with friends, the creation of the legendary String 

)6ustin Cats, and of course the epic relationship of Emma and Jordan. My love was always there for me and I depended on her guidance. However, alter all 
this, as one nears their end. one must stay positive. AAaybe the budding of a new existence is real after death and there is something new to look forward to. 
So. 1 will take these memories and experiences with me to share and learn from. What would we be witrwut our memories: 
God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December. |.M. Carrie 

Although a great time at SMUS is ending. I am excited about the new life that is waiting for me. SMUS has prepared me for a bright and interesting 

life. I am so glad that I have been able to spend my time with my closest friends. Surrey. Sharon. Ellen and AAaria lula. Surrey has been my most amazing 
. roommate for 3 years, and 1 will never forget the times we spent together in our room. 1 will miss our aerobics, our face packs, and our great conversations. I 
% will always remember Sharon, the other member of Be a Lady . for our funny plans and our laughter; you made me smile and be happy all the time! Ellen will 
I get the joke when I say. 'let's virafce up at 5:00 and study together.' I really appreciate M)'s optimism that has helped me through hard times. I thank all 

the wonderful teachers who have taught me. But mostly. I am grateful to my parents for the opportunity to corrw to SMUS and for their love and support 

Lastly. I thank myself for being patient and for doing a good job!!! 

AAoving from home in Mexico to a boarding school in Canada was a big step in my life, which 1 am really glad 1 took. During my planned grade 10 year 

2 more years at SMUS. there were uncountable good memories of fun and laughs that were worth all the stmggle and stress. Being part of this school was a 
V great experience with many life lessons and I owe it to my parents, teachers, houscparcnts and roommates. Huge thanks to all my friends for all those amazing 

I times . . . late night cbats/movies/phone calls, tea parties, walks to Starbucks/f ujiya. growing up. Brown Hall jokes, boarding adventures, the Timmis mid- 
^ t patrol, crazy shopping marathons, innocent pranks, fancy dinners. Mexican/Girly/Childish times and many other great moments- To the Bolton boys: 
you rock and I love you all!! SMUS gave me rrany valuable, life-lasting friendships (1 am not bothering to give names for fear of lawsuits) and broadened my 
horizons. VIVAT to the class of 2007! 1 can t wait to see you all again. j 

Since that fateful day when I stepped into School House to take my admission test, my life has changed forever. Through all the days plagued by lor 

strife, the never-ending torrent of exams and final grades. I've finally made it. Coming to this school, I learned a new way of life. I found hope, a passion, and 
discovered that love can truly exist for anyone willing to look for it. Beyond all this. 1 found myself, the person that can do more than just sunrive. that can 
succeed. Ill never forget falling asleep again and again in almost every class, late nights, and the constant chatter of every Asian language ever created! For all 
those that helped along the way. thank you. because memories can be forgotten (thank god), but the person forged out of the lire will last forever. Though 
I never found my home. 1 think I'm one step closer to finding where 1 belong- For this, thank you. St. Michaels. Most importantly, thanks for everything 
Mom. Black pride and Onyeabors forever! 

W^,at a long, strange trip it's been. We Uen't even pulled out of tke driveway yet, and were about to get l-ttoned by lite. I don t hnow about you bids, 
but I'm scared as bell; will I really bave to do my own laundry? Deep breatb in, deep breatb out. 

As scbools go, SMUS is pretty dope; bere's to tbc tcacbers, unsung bcroes; tbanbs for all tbe mulligans. And bere s to tbe teammates, eternal 
bretbren. Here's to tbe fitness centre, my sanctua^, to tbe Quad, a tbing of beauty and bliss. To tbc gids, congratulations for resisting me. Atbena, my god- 
dess, you complete me. fiaby, you're tbe greatest. To my friends, all I asb is tbat you know my name if I see you in beaven. I'll let you be in my dreams if I 
can be in yours. Tbanbs to Mom and Dad for everytbing. I love you. Beau, good lucb; you're gonna need it. To tbc deflectors. . .watcb for enemy figbters. 
younger grades, stabilize your rear deflectors. 
Well, 'bout time for me to be bittin' tbe old dusty trail. . .Wboops, found tbe fire exit. . . 

I'm a debater; I'm a tbinbcr, 1 m a green tea drinker, now I m about to grad, 
I'm a dreamer, I'm a scbemer, I m a tympani-er, leaving tbis world of plaid. 

St. Micbaels University Scbool is a place of intellect, but it is also a place of junior School computer monitors playing 'Now 4, Middle Scbool social 
activities revolving around Ms. Walinga's room and Senior Scbool parking space battles. Tbese things don't make it into tbe mission statement, but they 
bave been important parts of my education. 1 love and appreciate my family for giving me countless opportunities. Mother knows best and my heart belorigs 
to Daddy. My friends, past and present, have supported me in sickness and in health, with electricity and without and for this I wish them love and e-mail 
' bombardment. As time goes by, 1 hope tbat tbe Grads will make someone happy, for me, 1 will keep being an optimist until someone can prove to me 
that 1 cannot change the world. Tbis is just adios and not goodbye, f cilfie. 

You'd think after thirteen years, 1 would know what to say, tbat I'd have planned a nice little summary of my time bere, but lets be honest, tbis is probably 
my greatest procrastinating achievement thirteen years in the making. Some of you bave been with me since the beginning, from our bumble beginnings in 
Mrs. Miles kindergarten class, to them and tbe others that have just jumped in along tbe way, its been fun, well, for the most part. My friends, you prob- 

^ ably fall under tbis category if you remember tbe infamous white couch and 'eats' cupboard, thank you for always. . . usually laughing at my sick humour, and 
for creating some pretty memorable experiences, which I will treasure long after I've forgotten tbe names of these brick buildings. Thanks to my parents for all 

,' these opportunities and memories, my brothers for attempting to give useful advice, such as, to never to tuck your shirt into your kilt, and finally to some of 
the most amazing teachers 1 may ever meet. In the wise words of a dear friend '1 will look at this in a future as near as tomorrow and regret its creation. 

r f^, 

My three years at SMUS bave been some of tbe most memorable times in my life. SMUS has provided me with a great education, sports opportunities, 
and unforgettable experiences. To my parents, thank you for all your support and believing in me. 1 cannot imagine going through those tough times without 
you. To my brother. Art, thanks for everytbing in tbe past two years; SMUS is definitely different without you aroundl To all my friends, you know who 
you are. Thanks for all tbe good times together! Too bad, 1 will not be bere when you guys graduate next year. Take care and enjoy your grade twelve! 
To Mina, my little sis, thanks for the cheerful smile and all the fun we bad together, good luck and 1 hope you will enjoy the rest of your time here! A 
special thanks to my bouse parents and teachers; I will not forget all your help and support. Congratulations to tbe grad class of 2007! 

In 1000 characters or less, I am supposed to sum up thirteen years, a dynamic, vibrant and beautiful group of peers, a wealth of knowledgeable teachers and a 
million memories to last a lifetime. It is impossible! For The Girls, tbe times together are irreplaceable. Thank you for all the love, smiles, tears and laughter 
we shared each day. for Tbe Boys, it would not bave been the same without you. 1 couldn't bave asked for a better group of 'goofs' to keep me smiling, 
I crazy and in the midst of all tbe drama! Mom and Dad, 1 couldn't bave asked for better parents. Thank you for tbe endless hours you spent giving me the 
1 guidance, fabulous opportunities, and unconditional love. Leah, my best friend, big sister and pillar of strength, 1 wouldn't be where I am today without you 
. thank you. 1 love you. Drew, you're crazy, I'm crazy and we share a brother/sister love that is second to none. Grad Class of 2007, dreams are only 
limited to your imagination, never stop reaching for tbe stars. 

I finally became a boarding lifer. SMUS is a very unique place. The community bad taught me tbe ugliness in human as well as the debnibon between true 

friendships. Tbese years of SMUS boarding experiences had compose tbe foundation of my personality. SMUS. 1 bate you for turning me into such person, 

but 1 thank you so much for doing so. Finally a say to my buddies, friends, team mates, classmates and enemies. (The naming part bad annoyed me for tbe 

^ past 50 minutes already so 1 will go easy.) Human, you know who you are, and fall into which of my category, or in between. No matter which category 

) you are in, 1 thank you for being part of my dramatic high school life. Thank you and for sure keep in touch. Brother, take care. To the special pig I met. 

/ "Still got a few more years," we always said. Somehow tbe "years' quickly flew by and now bere we are graduating. You are the catalyst (tbe worm?) of my 

lool life. You are the person who truly falls into all of the categories. Thanks. 

tbis is tbe last

My experience at SMUS can te Jescrited as tke best years oF my life, and it would tc wrong to say anything less complimentary. A great mind once said 
"Life is just a mirror, and what you sec out there, you must first see inside of you. Three years ago I came to Victoria from the smallest school in Edmon- 
ton, to become the motivated young woman I am today as I discovered a universe of opportunities and potential with which I soared beyond my furthest 
dreams. 1 will forever appreciate my teachers and peers who have given me many memories that I will always carry with me. A great thank you to my parents, 
and, although words cannot do justice, thank you to my sister, Natasha: you arc the only one who knows the significance of conversation at a glance, who 
brings life to Saturday night Calculus parties. You will always be my inspiration. I wish the graduating class all the success in the world, now that \ 
into that mirror, see our potential, and take this great leap to find it. 


My three years at SMUS have been filled with inspiration, wisdom, and the true joy of accomplishment. Looking back, 1 will always remember and value 
the patience of my friends, the wisdom of my teachers, and the strength given to me by my parents, all for which I will be forever grateful. My regards to 
the Debate team: you guys are awesome, and keep up the great work. To my sister, my second self, thank you for listening to my random rambling, for 
sharing those panicked midnight debate preps, and for being there when I needed it most. I'm glad that we will be pursuing our post-seconda^ education 
together. Remember that a wise mind once said, slow down and enjoy life. It s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast ■ you also miss the sense 
of where you are going and why.' To the graduating class, congratulations and best of luck in university and wherever life ukes you next. Let s show the 
world what we re made or! ,.' 

6oyz in tha quad remix: Lyrics by Alex Reid. I woke up quick at about 6 hours to noon, knew that I had to get to workout soon; Got to get pumped 
before the day begins, before I have to deal with school books and friends. Walk across the field with the sun on my flow, thinking about how SMU helped 
me grow; Went into the quad to get the scoop, say hi to some friends as I make my loop. A car pulls up, who can it be? Probably Dave, Yianni, Niko, 
lake or Jesse; Music is way too loud, but I hear him say, "Wow, this year has been a great partay! Because the boys in the quad 1 will never forget, thanks 
I to my family and friends for helping me to a level that I would never get. Knowin nothing in life but to be legit - in me is a fire that SMU has helped lit. 

I came to SAAUS in grade 8, a tiny brown soul. All of you know notning has cnanged since then. No matter how much I try to deny it, I must concede 
that this school of ours has meant much to me. first off. my teachers, you have all taught me to reach for the stars and for this I thank you. My friends 
have also been okay, I guess. After all the fights and drama I have to say that I've ended up with the best friends I could possibly ask for. No matter how 
much I joke about what goons you all are, well, now s the time to tell you all how much you mean to me. I wouldn t ve become the person I am today 
without all your pearls of wisdom, or lack thereof. Mum and Dad, if you hadn t been so irritating I never would ve gotten as far as I have-so thank you, 
Karia, don t do anything I wouldn t do next year. I love you all. i eace easy. 


ems like it was only yesterday that I came to SMU as a small, stout, and boisterous little grade six with a profound love of wearing pigtails. Six years 
later I am still small, at a staggering 52, yet I have grown. I have surpassed the point of working hard, involved myself in some serious mischief, created deep 
friendships with the addition of potential enemies and made memories that I will value for the rest of my life. The Girls; All I can say is that you have made 
my experience complete. Endless nights, empty fridges and laughing past the point of no return will never be forgotten. Lc Tigre out! My teachers: Thanks for 
the motivation and support that has lead me towards the path of success. My Family: Thanks for the support and love, without it I am not whole. Dad: I 
graduated from SMUS after all, and you didn't have to stand naked on a field to see it happen. The reason I go so far is because of you. To all the Grads: 

1 you didn t have to stand naked on a field to see 

We did it! Remember to work hard, but still be able to step back and enjoy life. Congratulations and all the best! 

It s been three years since 1 was a new kid to the school, and in that time I ve grown attached to the people here. It was a hard time for me to adjust to 
my new life, but with the help of friends and awesome teachers that transition was made as smooth as possible. Sure, there were people like Christophe who 
didn t realize my name wasn't Dave until grade 11, or Aaron who is the main reason why I never leave my bag out in the open, but eventually they also 
began to help me feel more welcome in this new environment. I owe thanks to a lot of people, like Michael and Sean who pushed me onto the journey of 
earning a chromatica to jam along with. Also to people like Wilson, who taught me that it's possible to trip on almost anything, and lustin, who I owe too 
many favours for his help in the past. In the end. thanks to everyone here, I ve had one awesome time. 

It's hard to believe that I first stepped foot on campus as an awkward 13-year-old and that now, five years later, I m sitting here writing my grad write-up. 
It has gone by so fast. The times I've had at SMUS have been some of the best, worst and most important in my life so far, and 1 wouldn t trade them 
for anything. Thank you to all the staff for your support and encouragement. Thank you to my family for always being there for me through everything, the 
good and the bad. You mean the world to me. And thanks lastly to the friends who truly made high school everything that is has been. Workouts at 06 
rec, spring break vacations, late Friday and Saturday nights, rough mornings, rowing practises, regattas, Starbucks trips, council lunches, concerts, bubble tea 
' and Azuma, surfing, boarding, mangoes and ice, dinners out, DQ, fights and drama, good times and times in love. . .the list is never ending Thank you for 
cve7thing and good luck everyone from the class of 2007 with whatever comes your way. You II be great! 


1 came to SMUS in grade eigkt and ever since I never noticed Inow fast time was passing ty. Now, I am graduating and it feels like just yesterday wken . 
I stepped into tfiis uniform. Reminiscing through difficult and joyful memories, 1 will ckerisii tliem forever. SMUS lias changed my path into reality. I kave 
experienced so much from all the opportunities the school has to give. Leaving SMUS will he painful. I will miss my friends, extra activities, and all the 
teachers who put tremendous effort to guide me in the right direction. I truly thank everyone for the memorable moments in school. If I could advise any 
junior students, I would constantly emphasize how much the school has to give for each individual student. The only harrier is time, so take advantage of the 

aet involved, txi 

I different cultures and don t shy out. Cheers Grad of 2007. 

I came to SMUS 13 years ago; my tie was longer than my jumper, and most days were spent leaning against the stucco wall of jr. school avoiding the 
other children. Let's hope my hack just keeps getting farther away from that wall. My time here was stressful, hut recess, movie nights, just heing, partying 
(and subsequently laughing so hard it hurt) made for some unforgettable memories and made it all worth it. To a few: Mom and Dad, you two gave me 
everything, thank you a million times. Andrew, our late night chats won't be forgotten. Megan, you're my gid; nothing will compare to the hysterics we 
shared. Keep it real, man. 06 skids, you guys taught me to enjoy the ride right when I needed to learn it most. And finally to the gidies who were with me 
everyday, who supplied me with endless inside jokes and pulled me through, you're all amazing: we did it! I love those I mentioned, but to all the rest of you, 
remember: it wasn t cruelty, just stage presence. And truly, it s been a pleasure. 

After seven years at SMUS - with alarm clocks that go olf hours too early, homework assignments that take longer than time spent in classes, and sports 
for hours every day, I know that I would not have been successful by myself So thanks to all my friends who always knew exactly how to make me relax 
and to my teachers who tried to teach me everything I needed to know. My time at SMUS was not always well spent but it was never boring, so thanks 
\ for the time . . . 

My three years at SMUS has finally come to the end and it's hard to conclude my life here within 1000 characters. SMUS is where 1 learned to stand 
up when I fall on the bottom of a hill, and it is the place where I understand humanity. I guess I must appreciate this place since it furnished me with a lot of 
memories and good friends. No matter these memories are good or bad: I'll never forget them. To my dearest friends: 

Thanks for going through all the days with me. Honestly, without you guys, I'll be buried with the beauty that I see here. GrIO Gang, night talks, late inter- 
house nights, long weekends with rice-balls, gatings, singing-grams, hot-pots, foyer, young times two, and of course recently, MAfilO. Don t forget these 
memories cuz they are the only common 

things that we share, and I'll review them secretly when I'm missing you guys. It's sad cuz 1 know I'm not gonna see some of you anymore, but life goes on. 
Grad 2007: Thank god we sun/ived and good luck. 

How quickly time flies. I have been at SMUS since grade 8. I would like to thank all of my teachers and coaches. Without your help and guidance, I 
would not have been able to amount to being the individual I am today. Your efforts are much appreciated and (I hope) well-rewarded. To my grad class, 
I you are all an oubtanding group of individuals. One of the best I have ever seen to pass through a school, and one I will truly remember. Well done. To 
I the boys, thanks guys. Without you, school wouldn't have been half as fun as it was. Whether it was when we would all gather round and hear Al rap, 
or just playing the best games of our lives on the SMUS pitch. To my family. Mom, thanks for the support and wisdom you've shared with me. Bigs, you 
have done a phenomenal job of supporting me the only way a younger brother can. Avi, thanks for the smiles. I bid you all 'A-farewell' and look forward to 
meeting with you in the future. 'Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. 

I have been at SMUS for 13 long years. 1 had my ups and downs but enjoyed my experiences nonetheless. To my fellow Ufers, we finally made it. Its been 
a while since the days where we spent time in 'The Thinking Chair". To all my friends, I love you! Remember our first meeting at the dollhouse. Good times! 
\ Thanks for the fun times and always being there for me. 1 love you! jen Squared, I hope your rocks at home start to grow. Party at Sevens at 7:00. Kate 
W., you're the greatest! We had our fun with The Gof and the l-AAAX. Kate T., good times during our early morning canoe ride at the lake. I wish you 
all the best! Val, thanks helping me pass my piano exam. I couldn't have done it without you. I'd like to thank my family, especially my parents, for pushing 
me to do things I didn't want to do and for always supporting me. To my brothers, 1 love you guys! I wish you all the best. To everyone else, I wish you all 
tine best at university. Keep in touch! 

It's been a long ride. Although there were both ups and downs, all in all, the last 3 years at SMUS have been priceless. Mom and Dad, thanks for always 
believing in your son. I couldn't have sunrived without your endless support. I love you guys. To my big sis. Mavis, thanks for always being there for me. 
Kyu Young- you'll always be my big bro. Hyunjoon- you were there with me during all the tough times; I cannot thank you enough. Hugo- my fiC buddy 
. lol keep it up man. You'll be huge. Chadie- I won't let you down, I'll be better than you. lay- thanks for all your advice. Special thanks to all my teachers 
and coaches. Congrats class of 2007; I'll never forget you guys. 

I awkwardly arrived at SAAUS on tlie first day of Grade 7 witfi a mouth full of braces and a sliclied liacli hairstyle. Six years later I have come a long way 
from that moment (thank God) and I have grown up with an amazing group of people. 1 II always remember beach runs on day four (even if it was Febru- 
ary), sleeping in a snow cave in -20 degree weather, dressing up in pirate/Moulin Rouge/golf pro gear. 2am feasts, catching some sick waves and of course 
endless trips to the gym. But I never would have been able to experience J these unreal times if it weren t for my friends, who stayed with me through thick 
, and thin (fat and slim). Ill never forget all of you because you made high school fun. 1 love you guys. To my parents: you supported me the whole way. and 
it made all the difference. I am no longer that awkward girl sidling around the middle school. To the Grads: good luck in higher learning and life, wait, what 
am I saying? Tarty as hard as you can! 

V^'ell 1 was planning to attend SMUS for one year, but after tliree 1 can say 1 iiave enjoyed myself. 

For tkose who have lived in the boarding life, congratulations! You win. 

for everyone else still working at it, don t nave too much fun ... or don t get caught. 

To my parents and friends, thank you for the support. 

You know who you are. 

I wish you all the best of luck. 

Many long years ago. . . well maybe not so many, but certainly long, life turned, how do 1 say it? Tragic. The years of TV before school, ability to express 
myself through the art of fashion and classes the size of a small county had disappeared. Although the walks to school were quite long in most cases, 1 don t 
think I can legitimately say I walked 50 kilometres, in 20 below freezing weather up hill the whole way. looking out for bear traps that could potentially ruin 
my day. In fact the walking really ended when I reached for the car door. |ust goes to show how long our hallway is I suppose. 

SAAUS has done some wonders for me. I think. I suppose being famous has really granted me the rewards 1 truly desen/e. AAy great years behind bars have 
been great years nevertheless. Thanks to my parents for always encouraging me to keep it up and to my friends for being way too great for their own good. 
To my fellow rockers. Iiecp up the great music. For the rest of grad 07. go live life. 

The past 6 years have gone by pretty fast, but the last two have been the best. I have to say that being in Schoolhouse and Crothal is better than smelly 
old Challoncr, even though we've had to listen to construction for four years. To the rugby team, it's been good times and good luck to those of you who 
go on to play for university or Canada. To the future students. SAAUS is only going to get nicer, so 1 hope you enjoy it. but good luck to you if Drown 
\ Hall doesn t get better because it gave me more than one stomach ache. To the Starbucks crew for all those Starbucks runs during chapel and (lex. those 
e good times. And most of all to Niche, for always being there for me; those were the best times of my life. 

I love music, and to me, my last three years at SAAUS have been like one giant stud 
on my Altus flute. The gift of the new Barker Lbrary was like getting my Baldwin pi;

had an awesome time here at SAAUS. (Triumphant cadence) Thank you to all the teachers and students who have touched my life and helped me leave 
SAAUS with a great set of recordings for university. ("\Ar'hen in doubt, read the question! ) Best of luck grads! 

1 arrived at S,^AUS in grade eight and, during the last five years, have experienced more than I ever could have imagined. I made some great friends and 
was taught by amazing teachers. From out-trips to sports teams, my time at SAAUS has been memorable. To the Freestyle Club, weekends were always 
exciting, from landing my first jump, to completing my first rail. Finally, thank you to my family for giving me this great opportunity and for all their love and 
support. Good luck, Grad 2007! * 

Here is where everyone v^Tites their final piece, usually filled with inside jokes and generic messages of inspiration. This space, however, should appear somewhat 
different. There will be nothing generic, at least. I hope not. It has always been a simple pleasure of mine not to conform, and I don t plan to change that 
here. Im not going to ask anyone to remember me. If you don t remember me. you don t need to. If you do. I thank you, for I must have left a lasting 
impact on your life. I know of a few people who should definitely think back. 1 hope I'm not too forgettable, at least I don't think so (is this an advantage?) 
but it reflects badly on me if nobody remembers. Everyone wants a record that they were alive, a lasting impression of some sort. I just hope that my trench- 
coat isn t the only thing notable. Surely 1 m not that boring . . . 

One final note to the people I love: I love you. ,£, 

To Quote the late esus Christ, t is finished. ^ . 'W 

lustin once stioweJ js exactly kow to 'U two tirds witk one stone'. Serving as an example we learnt to work liarJ and play hard during our time here at 
SMUS. Ill always remember the late nights and the early mornings we had up in Whistler, and how we took 'put your bindings on fast because the powder 
doesn t last' to heart. I want to say thanks to those of you who helped us achieve such dopeness to date. 
Remember I'll pay bail for any of you fools, so beep it up in the future. 

thanks guys. Wfiat a great time we had. 

Due to limited space in this write up, I have decided not to mention those who are worth mentioning and of course they know who they are (this also s 
the trouble of forgotten names). Being a lifer in the boarding community is without benefit. All you get in return for over 17,000 dollars tuition fee, is recog- 
nition at your grade 12 year in boarder's year-end chapel service, fiut what's priceless are five years of endless opportunities, unforgettable friendships and gracious 
experiences. Through these five years I have laughed, wept, hurt and matured. These five years brought me valuable lessons that prepare me for the life ahead 
and shaping me a more ready and exact man. Blessed are the misguided, for SMUS will lead you into the light. Blessed are those who thirst and hunger for 
knowledge, for SMUS's new library has many scrolls of knowledge. Blessed are those who don't know where to spend their cash, for SMUS is worth your 
money. Blessed are those who see this write up. Cuod bless. 

'All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us' -Tolkien. My time is up here but I'm excited to start this next phase of my life. 

Before I go, I want to thank my friends who have made the tougher times tolerable and the grand times unforgettable. Thanks to eve^one who supported 

me throughout the years. I've leamt a lot about myself at SMUS and how important it is to be around people that want you to reach your full potential. 
I Thanks for rooting me. To the G.G who have filled my years with chill and gong show times, I'll never forget the endless laughs and inside jokes we shared 
I together. I'm ready to embark on my life and live it on my terms. 'This is how it works, you're young until you're not, you love until don t, you try until

breathe, laugh, t7 and love my heart out. KlO is peacing. A little hate & much love!

First off for my teachers, thanks for all your help, for 'The Lifers' congratulations on 13 years! Thank you to Sue Saunders for admitting me to the school. 
For all my friends who will never see this, I wouldn't trade the world for all the good times we've had. Rooftops, beaches, basements and cars. If we ever got 
caught it was worth it. Last but not least to my Father for supporting me for the last U years. Thank you, all. 

From being a boarder in grade nine to a dayer from grade 10 to 12, I think I can say that I've had some fine moments. These years have no doubt changed 
my life and I cannot say that I am excited to leave this wonderful place. To the boys, thanks for all of the fine nights, especially those 2 am Broadmead 
adventures. Summer of grade 10? Mrs. Williams, I don't know how a teacher could support a student more, thank you so much. A special shout out to 
f hysics 12. You have been good to me. To all the grads of 2007, I wish you luck, as we arc by far the best grad year since 1973 


My first day of classes at SMUS was one of the scariest yet most amusing days of my life. It took me a long time to realize SMUS would become a part 
of me one day . I would like to thank my mom and dad. I wouldn't be where I am or who I am if it weren't for you. Next, my brother and friends back 
home who never stopped calling and helped me through my tough times. To my friends (you all know who you are) who made my life easier just by making 
me laugh and were a shoulder to cry on. I will miss boarding with amazing people and sharing those walks and nights up to Mt. Tolmie, which will never be 
forgotten. All my gratitude to my teachers who taught me what is useful; Mr |, thank you for listening to my lame excuses for not wearing a tie, and to 
, Mr Young for making me laugh so hard eve^ class. Today I leave SMUS behind, but with me I take all the experiences and memories that will go with me 
everywhere. To the Grads of 2007, the best luck for all of you! 

Although I've only been here for two and a half years, it's been a lot of fun. Boarding in Timmis house has been the most joyous of occasions. I would like 

to thank all of my family, especially my grandparents for allowing me to come to SMUS and also for the friends that I have made throughout the years. 

Without you, I would be completely nowhere. To my day student buds, you guys are awesome and I will never forget our times in the music building during 
\ lunch and recess. To my boarding buds, I will never forget you and our dance parties in my room at late hours. To my roommate, you are my masterpiece of 
1 corruption. I love all of you so much and the good times we have shared will never be forgotten. As to my teachers, thank you so much for everything and 

you are some of the best teachers I have ever had in my life. As for the rest of Grad 2007, I wish you the best of luck and hope to see you all at our ten 

year reunion. Have fun & let tne good times roll!

Wow!! Now, I am in English class, and I came in 'lO minutes lats" (ist period) - couldn't find where my class is!! I came in. and the teacher told me to 
write my Yeartooh Grad!!!! YcarLooh Grad ... I have been reading other people s Yeartooh Grad for 4 years, and now I have to write my own!!! I can t 
believe it. it has ticcn a long and unbelievable 5 years at SMUS, but I would say it has been the most important and unforgettable time period in my whole 
life. I can't express my feeling with words right now because what I am feeling can t be express with words. 

Coming to SMUS for my grade 12 year was such an amazing experience. After spending many nights in boarding, days buried in text books and eating 
countless meals at Brown Hall, it is sad to think it's over. I have met so many unforgettable people and have had lots of great times that will stay with me 
forever. To all those who made my grade 12 year as good as possible, I greatly appreciate it! Symons gids, you are awesome, and Mahiyo I couldn t have 
asked for a better roommate. To my teammates, you are all incredible and I had so much fun with you guys. An enormous thank-you to my AAom, Uad 
and little brother who gave me this opportunity and have always been there for me and supported me. I honestly wouldn t have been able to do it with out 
you. After countless times of doubting my decision to come to SMUS, I realize that it was worth it. Finally, to the Grad class of 2007, congratulations. 
We made it through high school. It is now time to move on, and I wish you the best of luck 


'This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper. As we come to the end of our days here at this lovely institution, I have some words I 
would like to share with the grad class of 007; 'May the force be with you." To this institution that has been my home away from home, my cause for 
getting up in the morning and the reason summer is my favourite time of year you will see us as you want to see us and nothing more. My memories of 
this place will last forever. My family I can never thank enough. I love you more than words can say. As for me, I will leave you now, not forever no, but 
I am moving on to smaller and worse things, for what can be better than the days spent at this institution? Thank you for everything, and thank you for 
nothing. Grad class of 007, I leave you with this: Go ahead, make my day. 

These 4 years at SMUS sure have been some journey. With some highs, and many lows. ... But the truth is, I almost failed, my family, my friends, my 
biggest supporters, and myself If it weren t for a select few people, I truly believe I would not be sitting here, writing this letter today (I am t^ing my best for 
this not to sound like an acceptance speech). The Cooks, Mr. Blake, Mr. Yan, Mr. Tongue and especially the Andersons, thank you for your support, 
understanding and guidance through two of the most difficult years of my young life. I must at this time also thank those, who did not have the opportunity 
I to write this either, f eter Erickson, Andrew 6imm, Felix Steinberg, and some one who did, Osel Hita-Torres, you will probably never read this, but still, 
thank you for your support an don-going friendships. Of course, there are the rest, there are too many to name, which have also dealt with my recklessness 
throughout my interesting high school years! (I must mention Yianni, Niko. fiozy. Al, Anj, Weir and Walker). 

My first encounter with SMUS was in the spring of Grade 3, coming in my baggy sweats and Velcro sneakers, scowling at the kids in their tidy uniforms 
and angry with my parents. Thank-you Mom and Dad for your constant guidance and unwavering support, I could not have done it without you. I o I 
my friends, you have made my 9 years here amazing, I could not ask for a more hilarious, loyal and genuine group of friends. We have so many memories 
together and you have made me a better person. To my coaches and teachers, you provided me with opportunities to prove and challenge myself I o Undsay. 
Dave and Andrew, I cannot imagine life without you: I am so fortunate to have had the three of you since day one. Finally, thank-you Gracie for being the 

most unselfish, kind and loving person that I have ever met, I value your wisdom and thoughtful words.

Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2007! 

In this final year of nine at SMUS, I have had many flashbacks to my younger years at the school. Trips to the Senior school for choir concerts in the old 
gym. acting in The King and I in Grade 5 and Oliver in Grade 7 - these are just some of the memories from long ago. The school has changed greatly in 
nine years, and so has the class. To my friends: you have all have a part in my memories from school. I hank you for being 

there to share them with. Many thanks go to my teachers past and present, especially those that have affected my course throughout the school in a greater 
way. Thanks to Douglas, who has given me a vision and a passion for theatre, and while I wont study it in the future, there is much to look forward to. 
Finally, thank you to my extended family for their help, and thanks to Mom, Dad and Si for their trust, guidance and love. Your support has been truly

Congratulations to tine Graduating Class of 2007; 

Wilson Wong is currently 18 years, montks, 19 days, 13 hours, 50 rr,inutes anj 37 seconds old. Because he hates writing about himself, he has delegated 
this ioh to his inanimate volleyball friend. St. Michaels has apparently teen a wonderful experience for Wilson and he will he feeling disappointed (LIES!) and 
sad (not!) to leave this great prison, uh, school. In his 5-year mission to explore this detention-centre, he has learned many life lessons lihe "there's ALWAYS 
something to trip on," and "as idiot-proof rooms are not idiot-proof, accident-proof rooms are not Wilson-proof.' If he were here, he would give shout outs 
to his friends like the lolly Not-so-Green Giant' Aaron Brooh. 'Strong (not really) Right Shoulder' Alex, the tig 'St. lohn's Medic' Christophe, and the 
"Class-skipping Mess' Sean, tut alas, he is not present, and the above sentence should te omitted. It has taken him 2 days, 3 hours, and 15 minutes to write 
this. To this exactly 1000 characters, please ignore: Y ARR! 

A bunch of thank yous to those who helped me forget how crushingly tough this year was for me: to you for the numerous fights, to you for screaming 
with me in the middle of the night, to the gang for always shouting outside my window and accompanying me during my duty, to you for letting me take 
naps on your cushion, to you for the 4am call without realizing it, to you who laugh with me over nothing, and to the group who had hot pot with me 
outside science building because we wrecked the fuse in the room. I wish I could bottle up every moment spent in SMUS, and cork it. So that it would not 
fade away, or gone. (Including all the restrictions I might have grumbled over: the groans with my roommate at the instant our internet is cut, the moaning 
of f riday prep, and even the one sentence I m being yelled at almost everyday - 'Speak English in the foyer!') And I could unseal it whenever I want to, and 
feel the glistening momenb happening once again, without them turning distant nor vague. 

^our«,/ tattling through my five years of hoarding life in SMUS, 1 must thank my parents for supporting me. To my tun yau's: Henry: switch your 
music playlist. Wanger and tsenggg: my 2 best middle schooler' friends, without you, I would of never made it this far. Elton: Let's see those report cards 
on your wall. Vernus: Don't run me over with your 'car collection'. Hugo: Calculus class was memorable. Chloe: My name is too long too mention. 

' Winnie: No more ski trip! Surrey: Thanks for everything. Ahrom: Go to the practice room in music building. Margaret: Long hair is so annoying. 
Sandy: Af Econ class was memoratle. lack: Reggie, raintow. junior fioy's fiaskettall Team. Twins: Increase rent fee for coming into my room. Rimi: 

. I'm not random. Brit: You're too Asian. Finally SMUS 6 Bolton & Harvey: Bye, tye.

In my eighteen years of life so far, the three years 1 have spent in SMUS have teen the most memorable. First, to my family especially to my mum, you 
are the kindest mother on this entire planet! Thank you for the care, love and the unlimited support. I could not be here without you. To my girls, Sandra, 
' Mochi. and all my other friends, the late night chats, silly hyper jokes, daydreams, fat-free snacks, Friday night ferries, and our " be a lady or other plans. 
You know you are the test! Thanks for all the good and bad, the struggles and laughs. To all my wonderful teachers, you are great! Lets keep in touch. 
' Congratulations, Class 2007. 

The past three years have been very important to me. As a SMUS student, I have learned English as my second language after Mandarin, and discover, 
that my true passion is for art. 1 also learned to share my room with someone else. As an only child, this was a new experience, but a good one. 1 have 
\ gained confidence and learned discipline. I feel comfortable trying new things and taking risks, knowing that I will achieve my goals eventually. Thank you 
' everyone for your kindness to me! I will not be sad to leave-l will be taking wonderful memories away with me to another stage of life. 

My brother once told me boarding school would not teach me much more than appreciating good food. Well, that s a given, but I still have to ob|ect: ,n 
my 3 years at SMUS. I have learned to take my life in my own hands and make decisions even my mom would be proud of And more than that, my 
roommates especially have taught me a lot about myself and atout what's really important. Pushing through life, even when it's difficult. Most ^portantly, 
I've learned one's home is not in places but in people. Therefore I want to thank all those who have made me feel at home. First of all: Mrs. Hurner- 
You've been my source of support and optimism! Mona and Christian- You are a big part of who I am today. Emily-You are such a special friend to me. 
Peggy- We have way too much fun! Caro-I'm so proud of you. Al fin. Lexi- All those late night chilies, walks along the beach and private dance parties ^ 
be remembered in 50 years from now when we arc sitting on a parktench in Italy, sipping capuccino.
